The Hoops for Hope Fund/Friend raiser has been going on for the last 15 years at Hewlett. The game has expanded to 3 other high schools which now hold a game and donate proceeds to Sibs Place. The boys help by asking parents and friends to be sponsors of our t-shirt and journal. They wear the t-shirts around town and give our sponsors business. In the past, we have also held clinics, breakfasts, dinners etc. with the Sibs kids.
Our boys basketball coach, Bill Dubin, is involved with SIBS Place. SIBS Place is an organization which assists on the focus and attention which are placed on the challenges the well sibling faces in coping with their emotional response to having a brother, sister with cancer or another devastating illness or a parent diagnosed with cancer.
The Hoops for Hope game started in Hewlett with 1 game. Bill Dubin has been instrumental in expanding the awareness for SIBS Place and has asked his coaching colleagues to commit 1 game on their schedule as a Hoops for Hope Game.
