I really wanted to do something unique and new
West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) September 30, 2015
Hoops4Heroes, Palm Beach County’s first basketball tournament fundraiser, is returning to Palm Beach Atlantic University for the second year, to raise donations for Wounded Warrior Project during the weekend following Veteran’s Day, which is Tuesday, November 9th, 2015.
The amateur 3-ON-3 basketball tournament raised almost $5,000 for Wounded Warrior Project during last year’s inaugural game. The event drew twelve teams and nearly three hundred people. This year, organizers hope to raise twice as much in funds, with sixteen teams, and over five hundred spectators.
The venue can easily accommodate that level of support. Hosted by the Greene Complex for Sports and Recreation on the PBA campus in downtown West Palm Beach, the University has been an important partner to the event’s organizers. “One of the reasons Hoops4Heroes has been a successful fundraiser, without question, is the commitment PBA has provided to help us fulfill our vision for this tournament”, said the event’s organizer, Tom Copeland, Marketing Director at the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A.
The tournament will be held on Sunday, November 15th, 2015, beginning at 11:00 a.m. with a Color Guard and the national anthem presented by the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps of Palm Beach County. Other events scheduled throughout the day include a wheelchair basketball team demonstration and the presenting of various trophies and awards, including the Champion’s Trophy.
Players who are interested in entering the Sweet-16 double-elimination style basketball tournament are asked to register a team at http://hoops4heroes.org, and make a minimum donation of $60 to Wounded Warrior Project on the dedicated Hoops4Heroes fundraising page, found at http://gld.la/h4h-2015.
Thanks to the generous underwriting of corporate sponsor the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A., 100% of all registration proceeds and donations will go directly to Wounded Warrior Project, a national non-profit which provides family and support care to our country’s returning combat veterans.
“We launched Hoops4Heroes in 2014 because I was looking for a local sports-themed event or fundraiser that supports military veterans and their families, but couldn’t find one. Our community hosts plenty of 5ks and walks, which are all wonderful, but I really wanted to do something unique and new”, says Craig Goldenfarb, corporate sponsor and founding organizer. “This is now my firm’s signature sponsorship, and I couldn’t be more excited to do it again in 2015.”
Pictures and videos from 2014, and more information about this year’s event can be found on the website.
Hoops4Heroes is a yearly 3-on-3 basketball tournament fundraiser that benefits the Wounded Warrior Project, a 501 (c)(3) national non-profit committed to providing family and support care to returning U.S. military combat veterans and their families.
