“We love coming to Hoops and it’s especially fun now that our kids participate,” he added. It’s always exciting to see the whole community out competing and supporting each other, from the youngest to the oldest on the courts. It’s something people look forward to each year; it’s exciting to see teams come with their fun, unique team names and uniforms. And in the end, all the efforts from the Hoops committee and countless volunteers raise money for several local schools. This money makes a huge difference filling gaps that might go left underfunded.”
Hoops in the Highlands, to be held Saturday, March 28 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., is the annual fundraiser benefiting Lake Highlands Junior High, Thurgood Marshall, Wallace, White Rock, Northlake and Lake Highlands Elementary schools. Registration ends March 13 and the Hoops committee hopes to set another record number of teams this year. Last year, more than 800 students played from more than 50 schools. We anticipate between 800-1000 players, and thousands of spectators, volunteers, and families will gather at Highland Oaks Church of Christ, 10805 Walnut Hill between Plano Road and LBJ, to cheer them on.
