Pearl Oden’s Hoop 4A Cause – July 15

Get ready to have some fun July 15 as we get the community together for a good ole basketball tournament for a GREAT CAUSE! The purpose of this fundraiser is to help deserving kids receive a Konnected to Excellence Scholarship. We’ve found that 75% of parents with youth interested in performing arts are unable to afford the cost. As a result, these youth miss opportunities to develop in areas of interests to keep them productive and active, building confidence and self-awareness.

So bring the entire family out to enjoy some basketball and live entertainment provided by some very talented young artists/dance groups.

There will also be a concession stand with snacks and drinks in case you get hungry (100% or the proceeds go to the Konnected to Excellence Scholarship Program).

**FEW VENDOR TABLES AVAILABLE FOR ONLY $30**

We can’t wait to see you at the game!!! You can donate or purchase your ticket ($5) on www.thekonnectedfoundationinc.com or call 704-965-3434

We had an amazing time bringing the community together this past weekend as we all talked, laughed and painted. Everyone really thought that the S.P.A.R.K.

We would like to thank everyone that was a part of this process because it wasn’t easy! Thank you to Quick Shop & University Park (Dooby Shop) for allowing us to paint on their property. Also thanks to  Fit and Fun Playscapes, Studio DBS, Let’s Ride Records, Blaklaybel,GDMG,DB Images, TUK & The Konnected Team!
