Hoop dreams fulfilled by sponsors

Big Brothers Big Sisters is sending three young people to the Dibia Basketball Camp next month thanks to the spontaneous donation of four charity-minded friends.

Curtis Williams, Lloyd Holder, Glenn Jones and Jeff Baron pooled their money to equally fund two camp scholarships. The Dibia organization was inspired by the gesture and agreed to grant a third scholarship.

Patrina O’Connor-Paynter, the charity’s marketing director, is now looking to build a long-term relationship with Dibia Athletics.

The Dibia Basketball camp teaches basketball, leadership and life skills to children between the ages of seven and 16 years-old during school spring and summer breaks. Next month’s camp is August 4-8. The Bermuda Sun has been a media sponsor of the camps for several years.
