"Basketball has become a big part of life for many Japanese Americans. Many families participate in the recreational sport so playing for a purpose can make quite an impact. The goal of the Nisei Week Hoops Basketball Tournament is to have fun while promoting cultural awareness and preservation. With your participation, sponsorships, and the help of numerous volunteers we can continue learning and educating people about the Japanese and Japanese American culture through Nisei Week. Nisei Week not only gives individuals opportunities to explore their roots and the importance of their heritage, but also invites others in the community to participate and learn more about our beautiful culture. We thank you for your support and contributions toward our tournament and the Nisei Week Foundation." For more information, visit: http://www.niseiweek.org/event/hoops-basketball-tournament/
