Buckboard Therapeutic Riding Academy, Camp Scott benefit from 2014 'Hoops for Heroes" event

Posted: Updated:

Local organizations came out to enjoy some March Madness for a good cause.
 
Leadership Scotts Bluff's annual 'Hoops for Heroes' fundraiser drew quite a crowd Friday night at the Gering Civic Center.

Guests watched the big basketball games, enjoyed dinner, some cold brews and good company.

Putting on the event took twenty four people in various committees to bring it to life.

The proceeds from this year's event will be donated to Buckboard Therapeutic Riding Academy and Camp Scott.

Both of these organizations strive to help youth with special needs in the community.
 
"And we chose those two organizations because they both work with kids and that's what our group wanted to focus on is trying to give kids in the community an opportunity to you know, do something that they may not otherwise have the opportunity to do."
 
The group sold over three hundred and fifty tickets and hopes to continue promoting leadership in the community.
