I had the pleasure to attend Josh Powell's Back to School Celebrity Bowling Tournament to support his 21 Reasons to Give Foundation. The event was held Friday July 27, 2012 at 300 Atlanta and was free entry plus bowling if you donated $10 worth of new school supplies. The school supplies went to the children attending Josh Powell's basketball camp this weekend. There was a very good turnout considering the event was not highly publicized. Ludacris and Chaka Zulu of DTP were in attendance, along with Lorenz Tate, Hurricane Kris, V.I.C. and Lil Chuckee of YMCB. Fellow NBA players Josh Howard, Marquis Daniels, and Jamal Crawford were also in attendance.
Overall I had a great time, made a few new acquaintances and even got a retweet from Josh Powell. Everyone was friendly and having a good time for the kids.

Hawks Casino Night
This weekend my mom and I attended the Atlanta Hawks Casino night for the second time. We are true Hawks fans and Season Tickets holders so once again it was cool to talk trash and play games against the players.
This year the event was at Opera night club and seemed to have doubled in attendance from the year before. All of the players, coaches and personnel were in attendance. Atlanta Falcon's Ray Edwards was there to show his support as well as Tyler Perry's House of Payne star Demetria McKinney.
My favorite of the night had to be Hawks Center Jason Collins on the Black Jack table. For some reason I was shocked to see the "Big Guy" had a ton of personality, he laughed and joked with the fans (think he may have even let me win a little) I didn't take any pics with Ray Edwards but he was a pleasure to play against as well!
