“I reached out to some of my colleagues and friends and told them what we are doing to help raise money for the children in New Orleans and the response has been overwhelming,” Master P said. “It is extremely important to be able to help the young people from my hometown – these children are challenged with so much. This is just my way of giving back and we can have some family fun doing it.”
The charity basketball game will take place on June 29th, 2017 at 4PM at the Xavier University of Louisiana Convocation Center in New Orleans, LA.
Tickets will be open to the public and priced at $25.00 for General Admission and $100.00 for courtside seats.
