The third annual Cypress Hoops Invitational Tournament, held recently at Cy-Fair ISD high schools and the Berry Center, raised more than $22,500 for the “Donate to Educate” program, which provides college scholarships for district students as well as staff development grants to CFISD for innovative and creative teacher training.
The 24-team tournament was hosted by the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation (CFEF) with the goal of engaging the entire community in order to promote basketball, generate community spirits and raise funds for the CFEF.
South Grand Prairie High School won the tournament, while Langham Creek High School placed second.
North Cypress Medical Center served as the event underwriter for the third consecutive year. Methodist Willowbrook Hospital was a platinum sponsor; The Howard Hughes Corporation/Bridgeland was a gold sponsor; Burg Insurance Agency and Pride and Recognition, Inc., were silver sponsors; and Wainwright Dental & Associates, P.C. was a bronze sponsor.
“The tournament was a success for the third consecutive year,” says Marie Holmes, CFEF executive director. “As the Cypress Hoops Invitational continues to grow, so does the amount we are able to raise for Donate to Educate. We thank the incredible sponsors who will help us to grow the tournament into the future.”
