2016 Harts4Jack Hoops Tourney
Organized by: Lisa Hartley
2016 Harts4Jack Hoops Tourney Raised $8500!!
March 26, 2016
EVENT DATE Mar 18, 2016
For the past 10 years, our close friend Jack Rosenblum has been the inspiration for our Harts4Jack fundraiser tournament. At three years old, Jack was diagnosed with autism, and in 2007 we held our first tournament to raise money to help pay for an assistance dog for him. A few months later, Jack got Poppy! Nine years later, Poppy goes to school with Jack (now 18), and continues to be an invaluable source of comfort and support.
Two years ago, Jack was diagnosed with a serious seizure disorder which has multiplied the stress and challenges of his autism. Unfortunately, Jack’s condition cannot be cured, and he will never be able to live or function independently. As many of you know, we have worked closely with Make-A-Wish CT for the past two years, but due to a technicality, Jack does not qualify for a wish, so we are taking matters into our own hands!
We need your help to make this happen!! Please join us on March 18th for our 10th Annual H4J Hoops Tournament, and help us make a VERY special wish come true for Jack and his family!! We will keep you posted as plans unfold, but the more we raise, the more we can do for this family who is so deserving!!
IMPORTANT... If you have replied YES to the H4J Evite, your entry fee/donation will confirm your registration. Minimum suggested donation is $40 per player, and includes a t-shirt, prizes for the top teams, and great food from local favorites such as Garden Catering, Corbos, Pizza Post, Riverside Square, and more!!
Thank you for your support!!
