Hammerberg Lawyers was again a proud Gold Sponsor of the annual Strathcona Community Centre Hoop-A-Thon. The event supports the Rotary Youth Leadership Program which promotes teamwork, leadership skills, community involvement, education and respect for others. This year $15,000 was presented in scholarships to five SCC students – the biggest amount since Hoop-A-Thon started in 2006!
Chris Gailus and & Yvonne Schalle from GLOBAL BC promoted the event and came out to shoot free-throws for the kids. ROTARY gathered $315 in pledges per basket for them so their 26 baskets raised another $8,190 for Strathcona Community Centre Kids scholarships. Hammerberg partner Kevin McLaren was there and said:
“The Hoop-a-Thon brings together the community in friendly competition to support the amazing work done by the Strathcona Community Centre. I look forward to the event every year.”
