Shoot Hoops for Emmanuel House & Make a Difference!

Do you want to have some fun shooting hoops while raising money for a good cause? Participate in the annual “Community Basketball Challenge” sponsored by Carmel Rotary Club and Carmel High School’s Rotary Interact Club on Saturday February 23rd, 9am-12noon at the Carmel High School Gym on Fair Street in Carmel.

This Challenge offers you just such an opportunity, and when you name Emmanuel House International as the organization you are supporting, EHI’s Moms and Moms-to-Be and their Babies and Children will be the winners! The monies you collect will go directly to helping the Women, Teens and Families who come to us for help in creating a safe and healthy home for their growing Families. You will be making such a difference in their lives – more than you can imagine – and will have fun at the same time!

Your participation in the Shoot-Out will help fund much-needed resources (from emergency baby supplies to crisis support) for our Family of Families. You have so generously supported us in the past and we hope that you will again be able to help us.

So, everyone from 5 to 75+ come on out and join our team – either as an individual or as a group (family, friends, church, youth group or ministry) – and shoot some baskets on behalf of our Moms and their Babies and Children. 

Some important info to participate:

Each Hoop-Shooter collects pledges (either flat donation or pledge per basket) on our behalf and then shoot baskets for two minutes in the Carmel High School Gym. Retrieve your pledge form and info sheet for the Challenge and have some fun while helping EHI and its Family of Families.

On your pledge sheet, be sure to put Emmanuel House International as the “Organization to Benefit from Collected Pledges” along with our mailing address (PO Box 478, Carmel, NY 10512) on the upper righthand corner of your pledge sheet.

The Carmel Rotary will be awarding prizes for twelve different age groups: from toddlers to children to teens as well as for adults and seniors. They will also be awarding one Grand Prize to the individual who raises the most for their charity. Emmanuel House will also be supporting a friendly competition among those shooting hoops on our behalf, complete with special prizes for the individual and the group with the most pledges.

All monies and checks (to be made out to “Carmel Rotary Club Foundation” with “Emmanuel House International” on the Memo Line) with your pledge sheet are to be mailed no later than March 23rd to The Carmel Rotary Club (Attn: Basketball Shoot-Out Chairman, PO Box 421, Carmel, NY 10512).

Prior to submitting your pledge sheet(s) and received funds to the Rotary, please be sure to make a copy of everything and mail it to us at Emmanuel House to confirm your participation in the Challenge as well as the donations you collected. We want to send thank-you notes to your sponsors as well as verify everything was processed correctly.
