Dallas Mavericks Player Monta Ellis’ ME8Foundation Will Host Its First Basketball Workshop in Dallas

Share Article

Doling out assists is nothing new for Monta Ellis, who averaged close to 6 assists per game last season. Now Ellis isn’t looking to assist his teammates on the court but rather the Dallas community as a whole.

Founded by Monta Ellis, the ME8Foundation will host its first basketball workshop in the Dallas area on Saturday, July 26. The shooting guard for the Dallas Mavericks will be in attendance at both sessions (first session: 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., second session: 1:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.) at the YMCA located on 601 N. Akard Street.

The basketball workshop is uniquely designed for young boys and girls ages 9 –17. Depending upon the session selected, participants will join Monta Ellis for a Lunch and Learn Discussion or a Motivational Dinner and Discussion. The cost for the camp is $55.

“I’m excited to host the workshop in the Dallas area and help children with the necessary skills to succeed on and off the court,” says Monta Ellis.
Proceeds from the workshop will benefit the continual outreach of the Foundation in the areas of public service, education, preventive health and community development.
