NEW DATE: March 18, 2023!
In March of 2020, the City of Petaluma voted to cancel the sale of fireworks by small community-based non-profits throughout Petaluma. For many of these non-profits, this was their only fundraising tool. Petaluma People Services Center (PPSC) stepped up to create a new fund-raising event, with all the impacted nonprofits, to offset some of their fundraising loss.
We decided to initiate a 3on3 streetball basketball tournament, Rivertown Hoops. The inaugural tournament will be held March 18, 2023 at Petaluma Junior High School. Our vision is to make the Rivertown Hoops 3 on 3 tournament the premier 3 on 3 tournament in Northern California and to have it extend beyond basketball and become an outdoor festival of basketball culture, with shopping, food and interactive entertainment. Funds raised from the tournament will benefit local schools basketball programs, the Petaluma Boys and Girls Club and basketball court rehabilitation projects.
