Hoops of Hope All-Stars

Hoops of Hope All-Stars event will be taking place Saturday, July 31st, from 10 am to 10 pm, at the King of Prussia Mall in Philadelphia.

This event is aiming to raise over $200,000 to benefit AIDS orphans and their communities in Africa. The event will bring together over 1,200 shooters, attempting over 600,000 free throws – each shot helping transform the life of an AIDS orphan.

This effort was first started by a nine-year-old, Austin Gutwein, who was moved to action after seeing a video by World Vision, a humanitarian relief organization, about a girl from Zambia who lost both her parents to AIDS. Austin garnered sponsors that would pay $1 for each shot he made.  Austin shot 2,057 free throws, one for every child orphaned from AIDS during an average school day.

Hoops of Hope event has since raised over $1.8 million to build a school, medical clinic, water system and two orphan hope centers in Zambia.

The family-friendly event features:

  • 40 Courts dedicated to Free Throw Shoot-a-thon
  • Music Stage with local Philadelphia musicians & bands
  • Kids Zone with inflatable games
  • All-Stars Concert for the Cause
  • Free Throw Clinics
  • NBSA Keystone State Free Throw Championship

Registration cost is $39.95 and you get:

  • All-Stars T-shirt
  • All-Stars Goodie Bag
  • Ticket to the All-Stars Concert for the Cause

Please encourage your family and community to register for the Free Throw event on July 31st and challenge them to meet the $150 pledge goal.
