The ticket price of $75, in advance purchase, or $85 at the door will 100% go to benefit the Hoop Dreams Scholarship Fund.

Susie Kay, Founder and President of Hoop Dreams Scholarship Fund, has made it possible for over 1,000 students of DC make it
to college when they might have otherwise not been able to afford it, or have study skills to even apply. Hoop Dreams is not about basketball, as the name may aptonymically imply. The non-profit is about creating networks, relationships and preparing students through mentoring, career development, and programs to help with SAT testing. By providing resources to DC students it prepares them for professional relationships and to be familiar with being active within the community, skills that are valuable well beyond just achieving a post-secondary education.As the event suggests: "Feel Like Doing Some Good?" Then come out and spend an evening at Harry's Tap Room and find out more about Hoop Dreams.
