Fans of Snoop Dogg will be lining the court at Compton High School on Saturday, January 17, to see the hip hop legend compete in a star-studded charity basketball game.
The game will benefit The Stepping Stone, a new youth center in Compton for local area youth to learn sports, arts, and receive academic tutoring. Hosted by Zion Baptist Evangelistic Temple and PreachBoy Ministries, proceeds raised will help to finish construction on the once vacant building slated to open to the public in the Spring.
Joining Snoop on the court will be Warren G, Lil Eazy E, Allen Payne (“House of Payne”), Arlen Escarpeta (“American Dreams”), Brian McKnight, Los Angeles Sparks coach Michael Cooper, two-time NBA All-Star Champion and former Los Angeles Laker Norman Nixon, WNBA Champion and All-Star Game MVP Los Angeles Sparks Center Lisa Leslie, and former NBA players Khalid Reeves (Chicago Bulls Guard), Pooh Richardson (Los Angeles Clippers Point Guard), and Byron Russell (Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets Shooting Guard).
The game will take place at 4 p.m. at Compton High School (601 S. Acacia Avenue Compton). Tickets are $10 and can be purchased on the day or by phone at (877) 689-7717. For more information, call (877) 689-7717.
