Hoopfest and No-Li will use this partnership to raise $12,000 in June for Ignite Basketball Association through donations and donating $10 from each keg sold in Washington State.
Ignite Basketball Association (formerly known as Midnight Basketball Association) is a community and school-based outreach program that offers a safe, constructive alternative for area youth in grades 6, 7, and 8. The goal is to strengthen participants’ character, self-esteem, and discipline so they are better equipped and prepared for the challenges of their teen years and beyond. This youth basketball program targets the population within the central urban neighborhood of Spokane’s School District No. 81. While basketball is the foundation of this league, the motivational workshops and recreational activity are also crucial elements.
Spokane Hoopfest is the largest 3on3 outdoor basketball tournament on Earth. Beyond basketball, it is an outdoor festival with shopping, food, and interactive entertainment. Some might have a hard time connecting beer and basketball, but we know this partnership is a slam dunk.
No-Li Brewhouse has been a staple of craft beer in the Pacific Northwest since 2012. The family owned and operated brewery was Born & Raised in Washington’s Inland Empire, and is an internationally award-winning brewery. Our innovative beers are made in Spokane, using ingredients sourced from within 300 miles of Spokane.
As an avid hoops fan, we think you should join us the last weekend in June to experience it for yourself…and while you’re at it, grab a keg to support IBA. Rise up and help us raise $12,000 to enrich the lives of local youth through the love of the game. It will feel good, and taste good too!
