Jake Engel Hoops for Hope Foundation
Cedar Beach, Mt. Sinai, NY
The Hoops for Hope Barbecue is a community-centered event that raises funds to combat the opioid epidemic on Long Island, NY. So far, over $80,000 has been raised. We donate all of the money to Hope House Ministries, a local non-profit organization that provides care and hope to individuals suffering from addiction. The center of the event is a basketball tournament held at Cedar Beach. There is also a barbecue, raffles, and music. Our purpose is to create a life-affirming, healthy event that people look back on, and look forward to, with the knowledge that we can all come together for a cause greater than ourselves. Addiction is a matter of life and death. Help us choose life.
For the safety of our community, the 2021 Hoops for Hope Barbecue is cancelled. We hope that you are all staying safe and we are already looking forward to the 2022 event!
