We are excited to announce our Eighth Annual Hoops for Hope Women’s Basketball Tournament. This event will take place on Saturday, March 16, 2013 at the McCann Recreation Center at Marist College in Poughkeepsie.
The Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization founded in March of 2003. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised over $1 million for women and families affected by breast cancer living in the eight counties of the Hudson Valley. Some examples of programs the foundation has supported include: scholarships for college bound students whose lives have been affected by breast cancer, “Healing Vibrations” a chamber music group that plays classical music while people are being treated for cancer, financing of “La Boutique” an outlet that supplies wigs, prosthetics and lymphedema products for women being treated for breast cancer, and a medical gap care program that funds money to individuals experiencing a life crisis while being treated for breast cancer. Funding includes payments for car, rent, medical co-pays, health insurance and many more.
Sponsorship / Program Book Donations
We would like to give you the opportunity to be a special part of this event. We encourage individuals or businesses to sponsor our event or even be a participant. (If you want to play and need teammates, please email email@example.com or call 845.221.3667.) Court sponsorship is $300.
We are compiling an event program book where teams and supporters can purchase “spirit ads,” acknowledging the women who are playing and those we are playing in honor or in memory of. Each sponsorship level receives acknowledgment in the program book.
Your support is critical to the on-going success of this foundation. You may donate to this event online.
We will also graciously accept donations for our raffle and concession tables. Admission to the event is free for spectators.
