HILBERT HOOPSTERS SHOW GIVING SIDE — From left, Hilbert College basketball captains Ryan Brewster, Trevor Stark and C.J. Hodge present a check to Sue Cervi of the Buffalo City Mission.
As part of the annual Hilbert College Tip-Off Tournament, on Nov. 15 – 16, the men’s basketball program sponsored “Hawks Against Hunger” to help raise money and draw awareness to hunger.
Through coordination with the Buffalo City Mission, every $1.98 raised in conjunction with proceeds from the tournament would go to providing a warm meal, and hope, to someone less fortunate in the greater Buffalo-area.
On Dec. 4, prior to the start of the men’s basketball game against Medaille College, the tri-captains for Hilbert College presented Sue Cervi, director of volunteers from the Buffalo City Mission’s Tupper Street location with a check large enough to provide 63 meals during the holiday season.
