They Made It Happen

We’re grateful for the leadership and generosity of John Wentzell of the Delaware North Companies, Garden Neighborhood Charities, Boston Celtics' Head Coach Doc Rivers, and Bob Ryan who made it all possible in 2012! And many thanks to the inaugural Hoop Dreams teams.

In 2012, Hoop Dreams benefited ABCD raising $100,000 that went directly to helping our low-income neighbors make progress toward better lives.
