Hoops and Swish for Charity (Aired on April 10, 2022)


Greater Newburgh Rotarian Bob McCurdy visits Radio Rotary to explain how a fundraiser, or “fun-raiser,” for his Rotary Club also aids many different local nonprofits. The Hoops and Swish event, scheduled in 2022 for Saturday, April 30, from 9:00 a.m. until noon at the Newburgh Free Academy gym, was initiated by Newburgh Rotary in 2016, but in the past couple of years has been
suspended because of the covid pandemic. The idea is simple: each participant is given two minutes to make as many baskets as possible—typically from 15 to a high of about 50. Each basket earns money for the sponsoring institution, with Newburgh Rotary collecting 20% of the total for providing the venue and for workers keeping track of baskets. Teams of local nonprofits can use the event to raise money for themselves, or corporate sponsors can choose to benefit a charity of their choice.
