Three-Point Community Sponsorship Hits $10k

By 06/02/2016News

All throughout the current 2015-16 NBL season, Sportsmart have been donating $40 to us every time Melbourne United make a three-point basket. This is the second season that Sportsmart have joined us as the Three-Point Community Sponosr, and the campaign celebrated a milestone recently when we reached $10,000 raised. With United leading the league in made threes, this has been a successful campaign for Helping Hoops, both from a fundraising point of view, but also with the engagement it has created with fans of the NBL and Melbourne United.

Helping Hoops Executive Director, Adam McKay, says “Everyone loves seeing a three-pointer, and if you are a fan of basketball, chances are you also love seeing how the sport can help underprivileged children. The Three-Point Community Sponsorship has been a fantastic way to connect with the wider basketball audience, and we thank Sportsmart for their continued support of the charity.”

Helping Hoops runs over 320 sessions each year, and we are committed to keeping these free for children in need. The support of Sportsmart allows us to keep this promise and sustain our work going forward.

The campaign is not over yet, with United still to play one more home game and at least one semi final. We wish the team the best and hope you join us in cheering on every three-pointers.
