The countdown to Hoopfest has already begun and that means all hands on deck to make sure the tournament weekend is entertaining and memorable. The magnitude of our event calls for major volunteers and sponsors to provide an assist (or two) during the planning process. One of our sponsors is undergoing some changes, but their dedication to Hoopfest will remain. “This summer, the employees and services of Rockwood Health System will become part of the MultiCare family,” explains Marce Olson, the Director of Media and Digital Communication for MultiCare Health System.
MultiCare Health System is a not-for-profit health care organization with more than 15,000 team members. Their comprehensive system of health includes numerous primary care, urgent care and specialty services, MultiCare Medical Associates, affiliated physicians and a wide range of community outreach programs.
Hoopfest has appreciated its partnership with Rockwood Health System for multiple years and is excited to move forward with MultiCare Health System. Bailee Neyland, the Director of Brand Strategy and Business Development for Hoopfest, is excited about the possibilities of this partnership. “An event like Hoopfest requires sponsors who are willingly active in the community. We’re grateful to know this sponsorship will continue to positively impact both our Hoopfest weekend and the greater Spokane area.”
MultiCare’s commitment to community is similar to ours at Hoopfest, so teaming up was a no-brainer!
“MultiCare’s vision is to be the Pacific Northwest’s highest value system of health. That vision calls us to seek health care partners in the region who share our goals of improving the health of communities, reducing the cost of care and expanding access,” says Olson. “We believe we have a role to play in creating a vital, healthy community and we support organizations that promote active lifestyles, economic well-being and education.”
With this transition, MultiCare is now a Major Sponsor of Hoopfest 2017 and the official Slam Dunk Competition sponsor! “We are honored to be a part of this amazing event with such a proud history in Spokane,” Olson says. Hoopfest is looking forward to another amazing Slam Dunk Competition with MultiCare Health System sponsoring the high flying action. Make sure to mark your calendars for June 24 and 25 to witness this great partnership in action, too!
