More players suited up to shoot for Rory
The 2000 Hoops for Rory basketball tournament, held on September 22-24 in Highland Park, brought together more than 100 young players and raised $5,500 for The Foundation. Attendance surpassed that of the 1999 event, as four teams of fifth graders and six teams of eighth graders vied for all-star status. Rick Siegel and Verne Reich, launched the annual fundraising competition in 1999. This year included basketball clinics led by former UNLV coach Bill Bayno, Chicago Bull Jake Voskuhl, and two NBA referees.
