The Mario Butler Celebrity Charity Basketball Game will be held on Friday, June 20th at Edwards Waters College. This event will be the kick-off event for the 1st Annual Mario Butler Celebrity Charity Weekend, and will feature NFL players and other celebrities participating in a competitive, electrifying game of hoops against the 2012 and 2013 ABA National Champions, Jacksonville Giants.
This years event is be presented to raise charity funds for the Mario Butler Foundation. In addition, a portion of the proceeds is also being earmarked for the Greater Jacksonville Pop Warner Football Conference. Those funds will be used to provide scholarships to cover football registration fees for youth that cannot afford these fees due to hardships. It is our belief that no youth should not be afforded the opportunity to participate in programs like Pop Warner because of the financial challenges they may be facing, and we are excited to offer this scholarship to those in need of assistance.
