GTM Sportswear® is proud to sponsor Gridiron Celebrity Hoops XIII, the only celebrity basketball game to be officially sanctioned by the National Football League and endorsed by the United States President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. This event, produced by Jam Sports and Entertainment, LLC, is where professional athletes and celebrities come together for a charity basketball game to raise funds for Juli’s Kids Motivated to Succeed (Juli’s Kids). Gridiron Celebrity Hoops XIII will take place at 5:30 pm on Saturday, February 5, 2011 at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, Texas. The game has become one of the most anticipated events held annually before the Super Bowl.
Juli’s Kids is a 501C(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to enrich the lives of abused, abandoned and neglected children who have been placed in foster care, protected through safe house shelters for the abused, and rescued by child protective services. Since its inception in Miami in 1999, Gridiron Celebrity Hoops has made a substantial positive economic impact on 12 Super Bowl cities and collectively raised over $500,000 for Juli’s Kids. This year the charity has selected the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) and the various foster care organizations under its supervision to be the recipients of part of the proceeds.
GTM Sportswear® has donated uniforms for the players to wear during Gridiron Celebrity Hoops XIII. “GTM Sportswear® is proud to partner with Jam Sports to bring awareness and help support Juli’s Kids and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.” said Mollie Omenski, Sponsorship Manager for GTM Sportswear. “We are excited to be a part of this great cause.”
