Hoopfest 2016 will be held on May 14, 2016 at Calabasas High School. Like previous
years, our organization aims to provide a fun-filled community event while raising
money and awareness for ALS.
Hoopfest consists of 5 on 5 basketball games, a three-point contest, a silent auction,
raffles throughout the day, a snack shack, lunch catered by Stonefire Grill, outdoor
activities such as corn hole and mini basketball, a kiddy corner, as well as a DJ playing
music to keep the energy going. The basketball games are played with a 25 minute
running clock and are refereed by local high school referees. The skill level ranges
anywhere from beginner to highly competitive.
The cost to play at Hoopfest is $60 per player ($40 for students). This cost includes the
entrance fee, one round of the three-point shooting contest, a commerative t-shirt, a
raffle ticket and lunch provided by Stonefire Grill.
Throughout the years Hoopfest has raised over $500,000 for ALS research and has
brought awareness to thousands of people. It has even caught the attention of
celebrities who have attended previous year’s events such as Bret Saberhagen, the cast
of the movie “Glory Road”, Michaela Pereira from KTLA Morning News, director Jake
Hoffman, musician Cisco Adler, actress Mischa Barton, as well as Evan and Van from
TMZ. The event is also MC’d by KOST 103.5 radio show host Mark Wallengren.
