19Events Presents "A Night With Sports Greats" Raises Funds for Sports Equipment for LAUSD
19Events and M4PR have teamed up w/ "The Great Game," The Hilton (Los Angeles North/Glendale), and Baby Blues BBQ to bring you "A Night with Sports Greats". Ticket sales will go to the purchasing of sports Equipment for selected schools in the LAUSD.
Too many high schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) are in need of funding to support their sport programs, so 19Events and M4PR have teamed up with multiple sports greats to raise money to help keep these programs alive.
The profits from this event will be spent buying equipment and fulfilling other athletics needs.
19Events & "The Great Game" are personally going to provide in-need schools the sports equipment to help their programs thrive and continue to give our local youth more opportunities to build their athletic skills to ensure that we are building a great future for the Los Angeles community.
