Academy Sports and Outdoors was a generous sponsor, by donating a basketball goal to the event, and making a health-conscious contribution to our local community. We appreciate you Academy!

Our own Executive Director, Jim Brocato, was in attendance to determine the winner of the drawing for the basketball goal at the end of the day. The winner has never owned a basketball goal and looks forward to getting quite a bit of use out of it.

The basketball goal got plenty of use throughout the day – from those who have used one years ago – and those who use one daily.

The beautiful kites and games that were there were accessible to all. There were kites available for anyone who came and many community partners brought games and treats for the community as well.
