Culture Kings x Helping Hoops Charity Shootout

By 14/07/2014News

Culture Kings have stepped up big in recent months to support Helping Hoops. Not only have they footed the bill of our uniforms, but now Culture Kings have run their very own version of our hugely successful 24 Hour Charity Shootout: The Culture Kings x Helping Hoops Charity Shootout.

The event saw Culture Kings customers donate to shoot as many free throws as they could in 60 seconds on a special Culture Kings hoop while DJs spun tunes and staff kept careful count of shots. On offer for the winner was a $500 CK gift card generously donated by the store.

The leader-board was custom-made with a photo of Shaq just to add a touch of irony to an event that was all about being good at shooting free throws. Helping Hoops videos were on the big screen, showing customers just what we do with our 300-plus free weekly basketball programs for disadvantaged and disabled children. Culture Kings also made 8-foot tall Helping Hoops banners to ensure all attending knew just who we are.

Although we are still waiting on the final tally of donations, the event achieved something far more important: raising awareness of Helping Hoops and showing people how simple acts, like shooting a basketball, can help kids in need. We thank Culture Kings for their support and look forward to bringing you more updates from our partnership with them.
