2nd Annual “Hoops for Blue Scholars”

Hoops for Blue Scholars

In an effort to raise money for a scholarship designed to help Corpus Christi Police Officers, the Corpus Christi Police Department and Texas A&M University Corpus Christi have teamed up once again.

On Saturday February 11, 2012, the 2nd Annual “Hoops for Scholars” basketball game will be played.  The TAMUCC Islander men’s basketball team will be playing Sam Houston State Bearkats in a Conference game at the American Bank Center.  As a way to raise money for the Scholarship, a ‘pledge per basket’ system has been set up. 

If someone pledges $2.00 per basket (two & three pointers only), and the Islanders make 23 baskets, the total donation would be $46.00.  The more the Islanders score, the more money that goes into the scholarship.  The ability to make a one-time donation is also available.  

The Scholarship is beneficial to the men and women who serve the Corpus Christi community, risking their lives to keep others safe.  The children of Corpus Christi Police Officers can also apply for the scholarship.

Please make a pledge and join us at the game.  This will be easy to do, since those who pledge get a free ticket.  The game should be an exciting rematch to the January 21st game where the Islanders beat the Bearkats, 50-to-49, in Huntsville after a last second jump shot.  The Islander victory came after overcoming a 16-point lead by the Bearkats in the 2nd half.

Come out and help Corpus Christi Police Officers cheer for the Islanders.
