Big Russian Shootout

2017 Norm Smith Memorial Basketball Tournament

Another Successful Year

Big Russian Shoot was back in 2017 with yet another successful year.  With the support of the players, refs, sponsors and especially our wonderful hosts, The Hockaday School and the InterContinental Hotel, Dallas; we were able to raise $5,500 for Operation Kindness.  

Thank you to all that came out to play, volunteer and just have a good time.  We are only able to give back to our community with your support.

As the original and largest no-kill animal care and adoption center in North Texas, Operation Kindness is the place Where Happiness Begins. In 41 years we have saved nearly 90,000 cats and dogs. We care for approximately 300 cats and dogs on a day-to-day basis, with another 150 in foster homes. In the past 12 months over 4,566 homeless cats and dogs received medical care, clean shelter, nutritious food and playtime in a natural setting until they were adopted into new forever homes.
