Hoop Dreams is pleased to announce that we have reached a goal in our mission. We had set out to inspire our youth in the city of Saint John to volunteer their time and give back to those in need. It is with great pleasure that we announce Tai Mitchell oldest daughter of Hoop Dreams founder and event organizer Scott Mitchell has started her own of what she plans to be annual fundraiser. Tai organized and launched the first ever Bake for Baskets fundraiser held on March 30th, 2017 at Bayside Middle School. Tai at only age 12 along with several of her 6th grade classmates and one of her teachers put in hours of hard work and dedication to pull off a very successful event raising $263.50. This is a huge accomplishment for this young group of volunteers and a true testament towards our mission to inspire our youth to give back to those in need. The Bake for Baskets crew have generously donated all proceeds towards Hoop Dreams to help with our expense budget for the 2017 event. Tai is very proud to report that she plans to host this as an annual event. WAY TO GO TAI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
