Valspar and the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA) have announced a partnership to aid the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity organization.

The "Hoops for Habitat" tournament will take place Thursday (March 10) during the Painting and Decorating EXPO located at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside. The EXPO kicked off yesterday and will run until March 12.


Valspar volunteers help paint Habitat for Humanity projects.

Attendees will have a chance to compete in a basketball free-throw competition to raise needed funds for the New Orleans Habitat organization.

Contest Details

During the tournament, contestants will pay for the opportunity to make as many baskets as possible in 60 seconds.

The highest-scoring contestants will be placed into brackets for the chance to play in the final prize round. Due to the timed nature of the contest, only the first 32 contestants will be able to participate, according to the event organizers.

The winner will receive a $250 grand prize.

Winning Cause

All proceeds from the event will be matched by The Valspar Foundation and donated to the New Orleans Habitat chapter to help in its mission of providing families decent, affordable places to live.

"Valspar is an important part of the Habitat home ownership journey," said Jim Pate, executive director of New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity. "A truly meaningful moment for our homeowners is when they select paint colors for their new home.”

The Minneapolis-based paint manufacturer is the national paint sponsor for Habitat for Humanity International, donating more than $35 million in cash and in-kind contributions.

The Painting and Decorating EXPO is presented by the PDCA, a national trade association dedicated to the success of painting and decorating contractors through ethics, education and excellence.
