This year’s gala will be held at the Robert B. Meyner Reception Center in Holmdel, New Jersey on Saturday, July 9, 2011.
The Randy Foye Foundation was formed by Los Angeles Clippers guard Randy Foye after his first season in the NBA, when he saw the immediate need to help children who are growing up in the same difficult environment that he did. Foye, a native of Newark, NJ who lost both of his parents before he turned six years old, later earned a full scholarship to Villanova University where he earned his degree in four years and was a lottery pick in the 2006 NBA Draft following graduation.
Their mission is to improve the lives of at-risk youth through mentoring, character education and a series of special trips that create once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to experience new things. They prepare youth to be successful contributors to society and future world leaders.
