The Mt. Carmel High School boys basketball team will be hosting the 3rd Annual Hoops for Hope on Dec. 26 at 7:30 p.m. in the MCHS gym. A tribute to breast cancer warriors in the PQ community, the event is part of the Holiday Hoops Classic at the Mount, a four-day tournament that started in 1985 and has sustained the boys basketball program since then. Mt. Carmel is known for a sense of community that exists beyond the basketball court, so it is no surprise that Varsity Coach Chris Vitous championed the expansion the activities of this basketball tournament to include a tribute to those families who, by no choice of their own, have become warriors in the fight against breast cancer. Hoops for Hope is a night to celebrate the triumphant spirit of those fighting breast cancer and the families that support them. For more information visit
