The Humbled initiative, a North Carolina founded Non-Profit, will be hosting a Celebrity Basketball Game sponsored by SpokeHub and A Plus Test Prep. The event will include two games, the first game will consist of the surrounding area's first responders vs. high school athletes from the surrounding areas, which include Wake, Knightdale, Durham, Cary, & Chapel Hill. The main event will be the Celebrity basketball game. The event will consist of food, giveaways, entertainment, and more.
The Celebrity basketball event will be the driving force to the funding of the T.J. Dunaway Scholarship. The scholarship is designed to help alleviate the financial burden students and their families often incur as the students transition to college.
The highlighted celebrities for the event will consist of: * 8th Wonder And1 Legend * PosterBoy Streetball Legend * Hugh Thornton Ex-NFL Atlanta Falcon * Lenjo Kilo Professional Basketball Player * Joshua Gunn Rappe.
The late T.J. Dunaway is the friend and family member of David Garvin Jr., the Co-Founder of The Humbled Initiative. T.J. was known for his smile, his loving personality, and the strength that he showed through his fight with cancer. It is the hope of the Humbled Initiative that T.J.'s legacy will be passed on through his annual scholarship, game, and most importantly the recipients. The T.J. Dunaway Summer Classic tickets can be purchased at www.DunawayClassic.com. There are early bird specials along with VIP tickets available now. If you are interested in being a vendor, or volunteer you will be able to find that information on the Dunaway classic website.
