In case you missed it, it definitely went down this Saturday, September 7 at the Ray And Joan Kroc Corps Community Center. This was actually our first time being at the Community Center and we must admit that it was the ish! Not to mention the fact that there was a Harold’s Chicken truck selling meals on wheels. Where our chicken lovers at?
The basketball game was schedule to start at 3pm and started exactly at 3pm which we liked. And yes people the celebrities arrived on time as well. Marques Houston and Romeo Miller were actually teammates on the home team. Willie Taylor was on the court representing for the away team. We were impressed at the players skills that they were showcasing on the court. What really impressed us was how Romeo Miller, Marques Houston and Willie Taylor showed a lot of love to their fans by signing autographs and taking pictures after and even during the game. That really showed that they were out to support a great cause and even have a great time, which we believe they all did. And for the record, the home team won the first game and the home team won the second one, despite what the final scores said. There was plenty of entertainment throughout the entire game and also at half time.
The first part of the half time segment came from an up and coming dance team, rap artist that goes by the name of King Casear, a beautiful Star Spangled Banner performance from J-Lyn, and even a Michael Jackson impersonator, who had the whole crowded “Dirty Dianing and Billie Jeaning.”
The whole event was for the disease scleroderma. Scleroderma is a disease, usually characterized by the skin hardening & it effects various organs. There is currently no cure.
We truly enjoyed ourselves and would like to thank Carmel Latay and Elysium Entertainment for inviting us to a great event that supported a great cause. And shout out to Romeo Miller for removing his shirt showing his angel wings at the end of the game. We wasn’t mad at you at all for that one lol. Keep in mind that even if you wasn’t able to come out to the event, its still ways you can donate to the cause. Talk Ish…
