The Holiday Hoops committee would like to thank the many individuals who help make the annual event a success.  Again for this year area businesses and organizations will provide volunteers throughout each day to assist with the front gate, answer questions, and welcome fans. Day sponsors include BTC Bank, Farmers Bank of Northern Missouri, Farmer’ Electric Cooperative, Grundy Electric Cooperative & Mid-State Services, North Central Missouri College & North Central Missouri College Foundation/Alumni, Smithfield Hog Production, the Trenton Rotary Club, US Bank, and Princeton Rotary. 

“We can’t thank our volunteers enough for their support,” commented Nate Gamet, Committee Member, and NCMC Athletic Director.  “In addition to day sponsors, we also have volunteers responsible for the official clock and scorebook and those who assist with raffle tickets, t-shirt sales, and hospitality. Their time is so important to this event and it would not be possible without their commitment.”

To help commemorate the 18th year, ticket sales for raffle items will benefit a Holiday Hoops participant with a scholarship to attend NCMC next fall. Land Mark Manufacturing, Smithfield Meats, and Scobee Powerline Construction, LLC have donated items to raffle including a Good-One grill, meat bundles, and RTIC coolers.  Raffle tickets are available during the event, 1 for $1, 6 for $5, or an arm’s length for $20.
