When you hear the word “impact” and relate it to football the first thing that comes to mind is a hard hit. In this case the POWERHANDZ Power To Give Foundation is referring to the impact in the lives of inner city youth.
Last month the Power To Give Foundation partnered with Sony Pictures to host a private screening of the movie Concussion starring Will Smith for over 150 youth athletes. The event started out with a red carpet rollout into the theater. Once everyone arrived we screened the movie and followed it with a special panel moderated by Dede McGuire from K-104 FM in Dallas. On the panel sat former NFL players Jordan Pough and Bethel Johnson and DFW Neurologist Julio Andino.
This event happened because of the support of amazing sponsors such as Kim Alexander of Kim-Connects, CryoNow, Deron Williams Foundation, Point of Hope Foundation and FLUENT. The kids that attended came from the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Dallas, D-Bat Mustangs and Man Up.
We are always amazed by the “impact” that can be made when a community comes together. Our goal with this event was to get kids more passionate about the sport they love, more knowledgeable about the sport they play and show them that they can acheive something great when they focus on their goals.
Thank you again to everyone that made this happen and a special thanks to Rafael Barlow, Kauwuane Burton and Thomas Mosley for capturing this event through photography and videography. Want to continue to support the Power To Give Foundation? Visit us here.
