Two incredible PeacePlayers Sixth Men, 12 year old Max Samberg and his 14 year old brother Zack, along with their family and friends, enjoyed a day of basketball last month to support PPI. In honor of their Bar Mitzvahs, they hosted an awesome basketball tournament at the Carver Center in Port Chester, just outside of New York. For an hour and a half children ran around the court making buckets, having fun, all while supporting children just like them learn to play the game they love.
Together, they set up a Fundraising Page on FirstGiving, and raised over $2,000 dollars to help children in Israel and the West Bank play basketball for peace. During the event, Max said, “PeacePlayers is a great organization! I’m happy that we surpassed our goal and am thankful for everyone who came out and supported us.” Zack added that “It was great to see how many kids turned out for such a good cause. I’m excited to see where the money we raised is going when we see PeacePlayers in action in Israel over the summer.”
