Lucky Kids Treated to a Day Out at the Melbourne Boomers Game

By 13/01/2015News

On Saturday, January 10, a lucky group of kids from the Helping Hoops Fitzroy program were treated to a day out at the Melbourne Boomers WNBL game. The day included a catered corporate box to watch the Boomers take on Adelaide, a half-time interview in front of the crowd, helping draw the raffle, and a chance to meet the players after the game. The kids were also given their very own Boomers uniform, and we know for a fact that they haven’t taken them off yet.

All this was thanks to the April and Michelle at White Line Images (whitelineimages.com.au).

April and Michelle say about the opportunity “We believe that sport can play such an important role in strengthening communities. When we heard about Helping Hoops and the work they were doing with kids who really needed it, we wanted to show support for them in some small way. By providing an opportunity for a handful of children to attend a Melbourne Boomers WNBL game, we hope that we’ve been able to provide these kids with a positive life experience and a chance to be inspired by some really talented female athletes.”

In the words of Apanda, who attended and was interview at half time, “Best day ever.”
