This year marks the 5th year for our Annual Hoops for Hope fundraiser event here at Jefferson High School. All along we have planned for this to be our biggest and best year yet! In 4 short years, we have raised over $30,000 to help eight families that were enduring a hardship via cancer or some other unfortunate circumstance.
To say we could not pull off such an event without the generosity of our sponsors and the community members would be a huge understatement.
We are adding a few new events this year, prior to the Basketball game. We are hosting a Trivia Night on Friday, December 1st and then also hosting an Alumni Basketball game on Saturday, January 5th.
Here is the information for the Trivia Night…..TABLES ARE STILL AVAILABLE.
