The NBA is recognizing the Elks Hoop Shoot this Friday. On October 25, two 2013 Elks Hoop Shoot finalists will go pro for a day!
Nikyla Green, National Champion in the 10-11 Girls’ Division, and Quin Anderson, National Finalist in the 10-11 Boys’ Division, will show off their skills during half-time of a Dallas Mavericks pre-season basketball game.
In addition to sinking free throws in front of thousand of fans at half-time, they will tour the locker room and greet fans after the game.
On October 25, follow the ENF on Twitter using #hoopshoot for live updates from the court.
Through the Elks National Hoop Shoot Free Throw Program, the Elks National Foundation teaches kids the values of hard work and good sportsmanship. In 2013-14, the ENF allocated $692,750 to fund this program. For more information on the Hoop Shoot, visit www.elks.org/hoopshoot.
