HUNTINGDON, HUNTINGDON COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — A local community is coming together to help two families, touched by loss.

A Hoops for Heavenly Heroes 3-on-3 Charity Basketball Tournament will be held on May 12 at Juniata College. Organizers say Peter Rubincam  and  Dave Aurand, who died this year, impacted the lives of  community members, athletes, and coaches in the Huntingdon school district and Juniata College.
Proceeds of the event will help their families.

Tournament Director Jeremy Uhrich says, “I thought it would be good since it’s a charity event to give back to the families and to thank them and to honor 2 great people.”

He says both men dedicated endless hours to work with and help many children, young adults and student athletes.
