The West Hempstead High School Boys Basketball Program will be selecting their home game vs.
Hewlett High School on December 12, 2018 as a “Hoops for Hope” game. The team will be raising
money to help support SIBSPLACE.
SIBSPLACE (Survivorship in Brothers and Sisters) is a free program serving well children ages 5–17,
who are living with a sibling with cancer or another devastating medical illness, or a parent with
cancer. SIBSPLACE provides guided therapeutic peer support to help well children develop skills to
cope with the traumatic and emotional impact of a loved one‘s medical diagnosis.
Raising money will be done through T–Shirt ads, concession sales, and donations. The
T–Shirts will be worn by the players of each team and will be sold at the game as well.
