Farmingville, NY –  On July 28, Councilwoman Jane Bonner has announced that the 7th annual Jake Engel “Hoops for Hope Barbecue” and basketball tournament at Cedar Beach in Mount Sinai. The event, which included a 3 on 3 basketball tournament, barbeque style food, games, raffles and music, raised more than $10,000. The “Hoops for Hope” fundraiser was established in 2015 after Jake Engel’s death from a heroin overdose. The event brought together hundreds of people from the community to help fight heroin addiction, raise money for a scholarship in Jake Engel's name, and to help fund Hope House Ministries.
