Join us for the official tip-off of Hoops for Hope: The Jim Marsh Classic - a 3 on 3 basketball tournament to be held August 28-29, 2015 at Seattle Community College's Georgetown Campus. Thanks to our hosts Denise and Stuart White, every dollar raised at this special event will go directly to Mentoring Works Washington to fuel quality mentoring for underserved youth.
“This month, we celebrate these individuals who make it their cause to bring out the best in our young people, and we salute their spirit of service.”
Joshy, a 9 year old Tribal boy, was matched with an eccentric retired special education teacher, Tim. Both of them were looking for a meaningful connection.
