Who can ignore the gun violence and rampant illicit drug use in our communities?
A group of professional athletes are helping to address these issues and are planning a celebrity basketball game that they hope will help unite our cities.
The event is called Shooting4Peace. The aim is to diminish violence in our communities by reaching out to school children and the entire community with a message of peace carried by professional athletes who are successful people and sound role models. The game is played between former NBA players and local basketball talent.
