At MVP, our mission is to award 300 scholarships every year to deserving children whose parents or legal guardians can’t afford summer camp. For these children MVP is truly a life expanding experience, and we believe the 500 campers from paying families also benefit. In Westchester’s towns and cities, families with significant resources live more and more separate lives from those of modest means, a trend for which sociologists have given a sport’s-related phrase: “the skyboxification of America.” We believe this trend weakens our communities.
We’re calling on all basketball-loving families to support our mission. Spend the evening of Sat., April 21 at MVP’s Hoops Madness family night at the School of the Holy Child, 2225 Westchester Ave. in Rye. Enjoy great food at the event and enter basketball contests for the whole family. Your support, no matter how small or large, is an investment in our children and in the communities where we live. We also invite you to make a donation in lieu of attending if you can’t make the event.
