The Mothers of Professional Basketball Players (MPBP) is coming together for an event that will support Nevada Touro University's state-of-the-art facility for autistic children, as well as assist MPBP to award scholarships to high school seniors across America.
MPBP will host their "Mothers Charity Bowl-A-Thon" on Thursday, Aug. 9, at the South Point Casino and Spa, where they will challenge professional football players to see who can raise the most funds for the charity.
The cost to participate in the event is $500 and the nonprofit is currently looking for local corporations to sponsor a lane.
Then on Friday, Aug. 10, MPBP will launch their 100 H.U.G.S. Scholarship Fund at a luncheon at Caesars Palace. The cost is $100, which includes lunch.
FOX5's Monica Jackson along with Teri Jackson will host the event, where the goal for 2013 is to raise $25,000 and award 25 high school students across the country with $1,000 scholarships.
The Mothers of Professional Basketball Players was founded in 1994. The organization was developed to reach out to professional basketball players in time of need.
Their mission is to support the communities where famous players live, work and play.
