WHO: Mayor Alvin Brown, Superintendent Nikolai Vitti, City Council President Bill Gulliford, Sheriff Nat Glover, Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland, State Representative Reggie Fullwood, Florida Blue CEO Pat Geraghty and a host of civic and business leaders will vie against local high school basketball players in a game to aid homeless students. The Celebrity Basketball Game (see attached) is an annual charitable event sponsored by the I’m A Star Foundation to provide awareness and resources to the 1,900+ homeless students in Duval County Public Schools.
WHY: Student leaders in the I’m A Star Foundation have set a goal of raising $50,000 to provide resources and scholarships to students experiencing homelessness. Proceeds from The Celebrity Basketball Game will be used to assist homeless students and their families in Duval County Public Schools, Ability Housing and the Sulzbacher Center.
