The 13th annual Hoops for Horizons 3-on-3 basketball tournament will kick off at The Rumson Country Day School on Thursday, March 5; running through Saturday, March 7 with all funds raised benefitting the Horizons Student Enrichment Program. The charity event will be held in honor of Albert E. Martin, Jr., the Red Bank Regional High School basketball player who died suddenly in December 2012. A Horizons graduate, Albert played in the Hoops tournament every year to give back to the program that made a difference in his life.
All boys and girls grades 5 and up are welcome to participate in the Albert E. Martin, Jr. Hoops for Horizons tournament. According to Horizons Executive Director Lori Hohenleitner, nearly 200 basketball players of all ages played in last year’s tournament, which raised nearly $75,000 for Horizons; a tremendous boost for the program which relies fully on private funding.
