RAA Presents 'Hoops for Hope' - Fiji Children's Emergency Appeal
18 May, 2016
A'beckett Basketball Courts
Fiji was left devastated early this year on the 20th of February by a severely destructive tropical storm. Winds up to 325km per hour destroyed communities, leaving 347,000 Fijians, including 120,000 children in dire need of aid and support. UNICEF has been working effortlessly to give Fiji as much support but they cannot do it without our help.
The famRAAly is committed to giving back to the community and believes in paying it forward to those less fortunate, thus, we would love to present to you our first ever charity basketball tournament, ‘HOOPS FOR HOPE’. All proceedings will be donated to the UNICEF appeal for families and children who were affected by Cyclone Winston.
This tournament will be played as a 3v3 single elimination, similar to the NBA playoffs, so once your team loses unfortunately you are eliminated. There will be prizes for the 3 winning teams, so don’t forget to bring your A game!!
We will also be hosting a BBQ for everyone to grab a bite to eat and enjoy each other's company as we work towards a good cause. It will be a gold coin donation to purchase a sausage and drink but don't worry because every gold coin will be helping people of Fiji!
Our donations support UNICEF in allowing them to deliver water, health and nutritional supplies to the people of Fiji, set up child-friendly spaces to keep children from danger, provide counselling and psychosocial support for victims suffering from profound stress and helping kids get back to school.
“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.” ― Barack Obama
