Fun-Raising 2012!

This year Hoops 4 Hope USA and our extended global family have done so much to raise funds to sustain our programs, and fun!

Our 14th Annual Summer Benefit was generously co-hosted by the Kazickas and Koepp families in Amagansett, NY. The successful event featured live music, fire dancers, and a South African art surfboard auction that raised $45,000 to help sustain our valuable programs in Africa.

Also in the Hampton’s, H4H supporters rolled up their sleeves and grabbed sponges to host a Car Wash that raised $800 in just 4 hours.

An amazing young woman Eva R. devoted her Bat Mitzvah this fall to helping various organizations and raised $1800 for H4H from her special friends and family.  A personal letter of appreciation was read at her ceremony from David Stern, the commissioner of the NBA!


Alex S. and Jenson R., two young social entrepreneurs used their salesmanship to sell lemonade and H4H bracelets to help sustain programs for great kids just like them in Africa.

The International School of Brussels staff and students, led by Athletic Director Jason Baseden who was a former intern a decade ago, raised over $3000 during their recent Soccer 4 Hope weekend. ISB has traveled to Cape Town, South Africa to participate in H4H programs for the last 2 years and are returning in February 2013.

This letter of the month below says it all!

“Dear H4H,

I want to thank you for running such an incredible organization. Enclosed is a cheque raised through tournaments and fundraisers that I sponsored or helped out with. This is my first donation but definitely not the last! Keep up the great work you are doing and I look forward to hearing about your accomplishments.”
