Hoops for Hope: Greenies vs. Oak Hill
500 Christ School Rd
You're invited to a special evening of basketball and charity as Oak Hill Academy, the all-time winningest high school team in the country and defending national champs, comes to Christ School campus to take on the Greenies. Coached by Steve Smith, Oak Hill has seen 200 Division 1 players and 30+ players in the NBA including Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and Rajon Rondo. The Warriors are a combined 236-12 since 2012 and have won eight National Championships. Each of their ten players on this year’s roster will be playing Division 1 basketball.
In an effort to support Access2Success, the foundation that brought us two current Greenies Justice Ajogbor and Wisdom Asaboro, we highly encourage you to bring new or like new athletic shoes to donate at the game. Access2Success, a nonprofit that works to provide sustainable programs and generate positive change for Nigerian children and their families, will ship these shoes to Nigeria to distribute to Access2Success Basketball Camps across Nigeria.
Attendees that donate one pair of shoes plus $5 to cover the cost of shipping the shoes to Nigeria will receive an official event t-shirt. No shoes? No problem! We also welcome cash donations. A donation of $25 will also earn a t-shirt, and will send a kid to an A2S Basketball Camp for one week!
We will also hold a raffle for a basketball signed by Oak Hill and Christ School players and coaches. Raffle tickets are $5, and you may enter as many times as you wish. Proceeds from raffle will go directly to the cost of shipping the donated shoes to Nigeria.
