On March 31st, 2017 our mission finally came to light where we saw a young future philanthropist follow in our footsteps and help out those in need. Tai Mitchell – Daughter of Hoop Dreams Organizer / Founder Scott Mitchell decided to help old Dad out with his event expenses by developing a fundraiser of her own. Bake for Baskets was born and Tai went straight to work building a crew of caring and helpful classmates to volunteer for the first of what she will plan to host as an annual bake sale to raise funds for the Hoop Dreams event. Tai and the ladies of Bayside Middle School along with one of their favorite teachers successfully raised $263.50 to donate to Hoop Dreams, and we couldn’t be any more grateful for their contribution and their support. Most of all, they got our message – They can help other people at any age through any way they choose and thus started the addiction to giving and philanthropy. We want to congratulate the Bake for Baskets crew: Natalie London, Megan Hanley, Lindsay Moore, Tiffany Lowell, Ellie May, Regan Clark, Oliva Lydon, Victoria Robertson, Emma Coakley, Mme Sylvie Schofield and especially Tai Mitchell for organizing the event and taking on such a high amount of responsibility to lead to it’s success. Great job Tai and everyone involved!!!!
