The first HoopsQueens Winter Ball was a success (at least not disastrous!), and that’s thanks to many, many people.
Thank you to Francis Lewis High School – the staff, Principal (Musa Ali Shama), custodians, everyone. There is no way the event would have been possible without everyone’s kind assistance.
We’re extremely grateful to the participating teams (the young women, of course!) and coaches for not only providing exciting competition and high quality basketball, but for being so easy to work with in getting the event together. It was wonderful to see the college coaches in attendance out in Queens NY, when many came from quite some distance to watch these teams battle it out on the court.
And thank you to the families that came out to support their girls, teams, and just the sport of basketball. We’re excited to get things going again next year, with some improvements. For now though, let’s celebrate Winter Ball 2010 !
