Hoops for Hope Final Results


Charity Basketball Tournament a Success

As their final task for their summer internship, Melody Chang and Carolyn Han were challenged to put together a small fundraiser for any project that HSICF is working on. They immediately knew what they wanted to do and where they wanted to donate the proceeds. 

Hoops for Hope was a charity basketball tournament held on August 30 at Schurr High School in Montebello, CA. Over 20 co-ed teams gathered to show their skills on the court while supporting Operation B.O.O.K. (Bringing Opportunity to Our Kids), HSICF's education initiative. After multiple rounds, the winners were crowned. In the women's division, Turn Down For What outlasted the competition, while Shift Team were the champions in the men's division after many intense back-to-back games. In total, the tournament raised $2,000 for Operation BOOK which will help the HSICF build and operate more schools in rural Tanzania and Cambodia.

A special thank you to Melody Chang and Carolyn Han for their work, not only on this tournament but their dedication this summer. We also would like to thank all the volunteers who helped make this event possible and the teams who participated.

Why HSICF: "I was initially intrigued by the founder, Sam Han's, story. But after researching their work with the orphans, I became a donor. It's really important to me to help those who aren't able to help themselves and the children that the HSICF works with definitely fit that bill."

Interesting Fact: After more than 25 years in premier denim, Kris Park created a nonprofit organization to work in collaboration with her companies to provide real solutions to people in need.
