Last week the American League of Lobbyists‘ Hoops for Hope All-Star Classic, a basketball game that pits lobbyists against congressional pols and staffers, raked in $50,000 in donations for local charities, including Horton’s Kids Inc., a D.C.-based nonprofit tutoring and mentoring organization for kids in the District’s Anacostia neighborhood. The event, in its eighth year, was held at George Washington University’s Charles E. Smith Center. The congressional team members for 2006 included Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) and Reps. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Harold Ford (D-Tenn.). Other participants included Pakulis Averi, a staffer for Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), and Robert Drummer, a principal at Drummer & Associates. The lawmakers trounced the lobbyists 7-1. “It’s an excellent chance to get both lobbyists and staffers together to have a nonbusiness relationship and have a good time for a cause,” says Zach Sherman, a three-year veteran of the competition and the political-program senior manager for Lockheed Martin Corp.
