    I’m setting aside Writer Wednesday and the usual blog post to borrow this space and give some information on an upcoming event.

    Hoops 4 Dana is a 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament celebrating the life of Dana Sassano, a senior at Clarkstown North who we lost this past December in a horrible car accident.

    The Tournament is Sunday, March 27th in the gym at Clarkstown High School North. All proceeds to go to the Friends of Dana, which will support a scholarship in her name, as well as to continue Dana’s mission of helping people in need.

    Teams can have 3-4 members and there will be a running time of 5 minutes per game. It is double elimination, so everyone is guaranteed at least 2 games.

    We will hold different sessions for different age groups during the day:

    3rd grade- 5th grade: 10:30am-1pm

    6th grade- 8th grade: 1:30pm-4:30pm

    9th grade-12th grade: 5:00pm-8:00pm

    Cost: $20 donation per player includes t-shirt and water

    DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS THURSDAY, MARCH 10th. Registration is happening in the Annex at North during lunch on March 3, 4, 7, 8, 9. You can also register by mail. Please e-mail hoops4dana@gmail.com and we will send you a form.

    If you don’t have a team, let us know and we will group you with other players your age.

    For more information or to become a corporate sponsor, please e-mail me at shari.maurer@alumni.duke.edu

    To RSVP on the Facebook page and to help us spread the word, go here. (this does not count as a pre-registration, though. We must have payment for you to be considered registered).

    The event is sponsored by Clarkstown North’s Interact Club (Jodi Gottlieb, Lissie Maurer, co-presidents and Jenna Heim, committee member) and Josh Maurer and Danny Heim.

    Thanks to the Clarkstown School District and the Town of Clarkstown for all of their help on this event.

    Hope to see you there!
