What do you do when you have a basketball court in your office and a never ending desire to help out in the Community? NEXT Supply hosted a 24 hour Basketball Tournament called HOOPS FOR YOUTH to raise money to buy basketballs for local youth community programs. It started at 5pm on Friday November 15 right through to 5pm on Saturday November 16, 2019.
“We invited customers, vendors and industry colleagues to participate and join in the fun” said Michael Storfer, CEO at NEXT. There were 240 time slots to fill to ensure that 5 people a side played for every hour. Many played for more than an hour and family and friends also contributed to the steady stream of sleep-deprived committed athletes. “We are grateful to all participants that went without sleep … for the cause”. There really is something special and bonding about participating in a common goal to give back to others. In total, NEXT raised over $3,000 and has already committed to buying balls for YMCA, Inner City Outreach and other community centers across the GTA.
Stay tuned for the date of the 48 hour basketball game in early 2020. #worktogether and #playtogether
