We want to express our deepest gratitude for your support of HOOPLA 2018. Thanks to your generosity, we raised $436,725 for financial aid - exceeding our goal by over 9%. How is this possible? It is possible because each and every one of you pitched in and contributed to the success of HOOPLA 2018: No Ball at All.

The support, excitement and sheer determination of our community has won the day. We started the year with a new Head of School and a new Director of Advancement - neither of whom had ever experienced HOOPLA. Having a “virtual HOOPLA” this year allows us to refocus and plan for HOOPLA 2019 in celebration of our fifty years on the La Pietra campus.

To all of you, our heartfelt thanks for believing in us and allowing our virtual dream to come true. We look forward to seeing you at HOOPLA 2019.

We would also like to thank HOOPLA committee members Dr. Josh Watson, Randi Silleck-Conway ’69, Debbie Weil-Manuma ’75, Lauran Bromley ’76, Wendy Crabb, Dawn MacNaughton, Blair Parry-Okeden ’68, Liza Lee, and Keala O'Sullivan.

Mahalo For Your Support!
