Andre Iguodala & Stars Within Reach Host ‘Bowling for Promise’ + special sporting guests
Monday night was All Star Bowling night at Lucky Strikes Lanes and Lounge in Center City, and even though 76er guard Andre Iguodala was the host the real stars were the 20 kids from Urban Promise, a New Jersey-based school equipping children and teens with the skills necessary for academic achievement, life management, spiritual growth and leadership. The event brought out 150+ guests including Iguodala’s teammates Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner, along with Eagles tight end Cornelius Ingram.
T’Yiona Price, TatyanNobles and Enyce Nelson were feted by Stars Within Reach, 76er guard Andre Iguodala, and the Andre Iguodala Youth Foundation hosted ‘Bowling for Promise’ – a kick-off to a 10-day statewide initiative to increase awareness and monetary support for educational programs for underserved children living in urban areas and children living with autism. Titled “A Race for Promise’, and running until Thursday, March 31, the campaign consists of a fun ‘face off’ between Iguodala and teammate Jrue Holiday, in which they both encourage fans to visit the Stars Within Reach website and make a donation – Iguodala on behalf of underserved children living in urban areas and Holiday on behalf of children living with autism.
Stars Within Reach challenged Andre Iguodala and Jrue Holiday to an ultimate a Race for Promise. Iguodala made a promise to help support the students at Urban Promise, a school based in Camden, NJ. Jrue Holiday made a promise to help children impacted by autism.
I was just fascinated by this and stared at it for a while
Miss Pennsylvania Andrea Helfrich ends her reign Saturday night. It been an amazing experience she told me, and very rewarding when she was able to lend her support to the various charity organizations like Stars Within Reach?
