Hoops For The Kids: Lights 'n Sirens Edition


Thank you to those who came out to the Hoops For The Kids event. Between the College Park Volunteer Fire Department and the University of Maryland Police Department, we raised over $2,000.00 dollars. While the main event, the Lights ‘n Sirens game ended in a tie, players from both teams came together to take on the student team bracket winner. It was a tough match, but the students prevailed and won, Congratulations!

Thank you to the Maryland Student Officials Association (MSOA) for their generous donation of the space and for the officials who donated their time. Thank you to DJ Chris Styles, the Original Ledo Restaurant, Navy ROTC for their use of a room, members of the College Park Volunteer Fire Department, members of the University of Maryland Police Department, and of course the wonderful and dedicated staff at Terp Thon!
