This year’s Hoops for Youth Lobbyists vs. Congress basketball game will take place on September 14. This great fundraising event takes place annually and has raised over $400,000 to date for multiple children’s charities in the area. I strongly encourage people to attend. I promise, it is always entertaining! Who doesn’t want to see Members and Lobbyists battle it out on the court for a good cause? In addition to the main game there is also a Hill day for the kids, a kids basketball clinic and silent auction.
Previous Congressional players include: Sen. John Thune, Reps. John Shimkus, Ron Kind, Jeff Flake, Jay Inslee, Rick Larsen, Todd Tiahrt, Kendrick Meek, William Clay, Steve Scalise, Brad Ellsworth, Dean Heller, Todd Platt, Charlie Dent and Frank LoBiondo.
