The Arkansas House and the Arkansas Senate will battle it out – not in the legislative chambers – but on the basketball court at the Jack Stephens Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock to raise money for a good cause.
UA Little will host the seventh annual Hoops for Kids Sake, a charity basketball game, at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25. The series is tied at 3-3 between the House and the Senate, with the Senate having won three years in a row.
Celebrity players, coaches, and special guests will be on hand for the bipartisan exhibition game, which has raised more nearly $200,000 since its inception in 2013.
General admission tickets are $10 and will be available at the door. All proceeds will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas (BBBSCA), Boys & Girls Club of Bryant and Boys & Girls Club of Saline County. A VIP Reception, with catering from Gina’s Catering, will start at 6 p.m. with tip-off at 7 p.m. Member from both Boys & Girls Clubs are coordinating a fun cheer for the crowd during half-time.
