300 teams signed up for the annual basketball tournament

Saturday marks the 24th year of the annual Alliance for Youth Spring Fling Hoop Thing and this year sets record amount of folks who turned out for the cause.

over 300 teams played in the fundraiser this year and in the previous years, the organization struggled to break that mark. The event is on track to bring in about $20,000 dollars and that money will go to much-needed services for teens in Montana.

Kristy Stroop said, "we do a lot of work around suicide prevention and substance abuse prevention and family support and just youth and parenting skills and we need to be able to continue our programs for the communities."
