The Nets All-Star point guard’s signature fundraising event will feature a round-robin style dodgeball tournament, a VIP meet & greet lounge, a live and silent auction, great music by DJ Mode, top shelf open bar, a delicious array of food presented by Master Purveyors, Inc. and sweet treats by Konfections By Karrah and Jala.

All proceeds from this highly anticipated event will benefit the Point of Hope Foundation and Brooklyn’s League Education and Treatment Center.
“This is my favorite event and I think it’s a great event. It’s pretty affordable for everybody and it’s a great way to raise money. There are so many different causes and diseases and people who have problems that the Point of Hope is just about helping people, and kids, especially. I’m blessed to be able to give back,” said Deron Williams.
