The ARS/Rescue Rooter National Hoopfest was established in 2011 by Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway and Travis Haddock. The events are held currently in Memphis, Dallas, and Tampa. The 2014, 2015 and 2016 events were televised on ESPN2! The 2015 game featuring Oak Hill Academy vs. Hamilton High School (Memphis, TN) was ESPN’s highest rated high school game of the year, reaching almost 6 Million viewers, and Hoopfest tournaments are always regarded as one of the nation’s top national high school basketball events by MaxPreps and ESPN.
The ARS/Conway Services Showcase was a preliminary event on December 1, 2016 in Memphis, TN, and it was a huge success! We even gave away a HVAC unit to Melony Walker, a deserving member of that community! To see our interview about the event with Penny, click here.

Here at ARS, we continue to foster that growth and use it as a platform to be involved in the community!
