Tonight is the 4th annual Play It Forward Charity Basketball Game (Kids vs Cops) at West High School. Reverend Dr. Alexander Gee, Jr., Senior Pastor at Fountain of Life Church, came up with the idea of a charity basketball game between cops and kids several years ago. The proceeds go to defray the costs of the West High Black Student Union Spring Break Tour in which historically black colleges are visited. The game starts at 6:30pm tonight and is a wonderful family event. We hope to see you there!
