Today we've got lots more to share from Hoops for Harris 2022 and SO MANY people to thank for making this our most successful event ever! ❀️

First and foremost, I couldn't done it without Andre Ghelfi-Thomas, who was my right-hand man, bracket-master-extroadinaire and the one-and-only-announcer, event team director and bracket manager who you may have seen running back and forth between the two gyms all day! Thank you, Andre, from the bottom of my heart, for your devotion to our mission and your willingness to take on anything I ask of you! I'd also like to thank Nina Victoria Wilson and Emily Henschel for always sticking by our sides and jumping in wherever help is needed! ❀️ You three have been there since the beginning and I am truly grateful for you and your beautiful hearts!

Next, I'd like to thank Renee Glembin (Shorewood High School Student Council Advisor) and all of the SHS Student Council members and National Honor Society members who volunteered their time to help make this event run so smoothly! Thank you also to the Shorewood Recreation Department for taking care of registrations and loaning us the gym space, basketballs and Shorewood Athletics for lending us the sound system and use of the scoreboard!

This event was sponsored by some amazing companies and organizations, including Chapman Basketball Academy, Burke Periodontics Implant Dentistry, Milwaukee Kayak Company, Husch Blackwell, Eggers Imprints, Corner Bakery, Shorewood Foundation, Riverwest Realty Milwaukee, and Kapco Metal Stamping as well as some amazing individuals: Tom Schmit, Deb Spiering and Douglas Yip.

Lastly, a huge thank you to those businesses who donated to our silent auction, helping us to raise an additional $1000 on the day of the event! Pure Barre, Milwaukee Brewers Milwaukee Bucks Discovery World Milwaukee Milkmen Milwaukee Wave Professional Soccer Team Milwaukee Public Museum MOD Pizza, Marcus Hotels & Resorts and Colectivo Coffee!

Happy 414 Day, MKE. β˜€οΈ

I remember when this day became a thing - I worked at Laacke & Joys upriver and the two cool guys who thought of it were so excited about their idea that even the Mayor dedicated this day with a special proclamation. And now look at what they’ve created… a city excited to celebrate their city. Pretty neat. πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
