Hoops for Tots is hosting a charity basketball tournament on October 5 at Great Plains Hall in Arapahoe, Wyo. Eight teams will be allowed to sign up with all players being under the age of ten. Each team must have a minimum of ten players with one girl from each team on the floor at all times. Each roster can only have one ten year old player. Entry fee is $50 per team and is due before the first game. Tournament play starts at 10 a.m. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for children. All funds raised during the games will go towards Slots for Tots which is an annual slot tournament held every December at the Wind River Hotel and Casino.
In its fifth year, Slots for Tots has helped over 1,000 children in foster care receive a Christmas present. Last year, 794 children received a gift. All presents were delivered to the Northern Arapaho Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and the Northern Arapaho and Riverton Department of Family Services. Each agency then wraps each present and delivers the gifts before Christmas.
To register for the tournament or for more information please contact Robert Duran at 307-851-6579 or Sterling Black at 307-851-7582.
