Hula for Moola Hula Hoopla Challenge


Bracket by Chad Meyers

If your NCAA bracket is busted, you can still win big in a completely different type of bracket challenge worthy of all the hoopla of March!

As part of our Hula for Moola Scholarship Fundraiser on Thursday, April 10 at 6pm at Chooch’s Pizza, 64 S. Grove Avenue, EYPN will conduct our first ever Hula for Moola Hula Hoopla Challenge.

16 contestants will compete head-to-head in a bracket-style tournament of Hawaiian hip-shaking, hula-hooping fun! Winners will advance to take on the winners of other match-ups round-by-round straight through to the Final Two. Our first, second and third place finalists will receive a Tropical Trophy and other prizes will go to the overall winner!

Participation is FREE but a monetary donation to the EYPN Scholarship Fund would be appreciated from all entrants.

Ready to shoot some hoops, EYPN style? Sign up now to be a part of EYPN’s Hula Hoopla Challenge at next Thursday’s Hula for Moola Scholarship Fundraiser.

E-mail us at to reserve your spot in our Field of 16 or to find out just what all the Hula Hoopla is about.
