Percy Miller’s annual charity basketball game at Xavier University of Louisiana was more than just hoops, it was basketball with a purpose. Ten scholarships were donated to the inner-city kids in the New Orleans community. The stars came out and played for a great cause in the midst of a packed arena. The super girl group June’s Diary sung the national anthem.

The halftime show was performed by R&B super star Cymphonique and Southern University marching band. The 3-point contest and dunk competition also got fans out of their seats as Team NOLA won the championship and Romeo dedicated the MVP trophy to 7-year old Dequante Hobbs Jr.

This day was all about peace, helping and preparing the next generation. It was a family fun entertaining event
filled with excitement, peace and hope.
