Want to watch the biggest game of the college basketball season while networking with insurance community professionals? Then come to the third annual Hoops for Hope, an exciting fundraising event benefiting City of Hope on April 8, 2013, in restaurants and sports bars in several cities across the nation.
This fundraiser has grown from one to two to five cities in its three years of existence, raising more than $200,000 total for City of Hope since its inception. The combination networking/sports evenings are now held in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Phoenix, Des Moines and Chicago, with funds raised through sponsorships and ticket sales. Each location also has an auction and raffle that has proven to be a great way to increase the fun.
National sponsor Tristar Risk Management has challenged City of Hope’s National Insurance Industry Council to raise $1 million for over the next five years. To that end, Hoops for Hope will be spreading to even more locations. So if you can’t make it to one of this year’s locations, let us know if you want to be involved in bringing this event to your city!
