It came to our attention through one of our members/boys basketball player’s parents that a young man in one of the districts in our area was recently diagnosed with bone cancer. You can imagine the burden this has put on him and his family. In addition, because of his treatments, he’s no longer able to play sports (he was a varsity soccer player and JV basketball player)
Red Hook boys basketball happen to be playing his school, Highland High School, Highland NY, this Friday the 18th. The members of the varsity club wanted to help. We decided to hold a Hoop Shoot Raffle where we would collect donations for a chance for a half-court shot contest. All the proceeds will be donated to the family of the student from Highland.
It fits in perfectly with our goal of giving back to the community, not just the Red Hook community but to the high school athletics community.
The varsity club gives back anywhere from 20-30 hours of community service a year.
