Balling for Lupus Luvs Foundation
In an effort to raise awareness and funds for 501(c)(3) Lupus organizations, Blaq Pearl Entertainment owner, Mrs. Bo Talley-Williams and her husband Fred Williams, (Coach of the WNBA Team Dallas Wings) host an Annual " Charity Celebrity Basketball Game" featuring all female players themed
"BALLING FOR LUPUS" .
For the past 6 years, this event is organized to support entities like the Lupus Foundation of America and other 501c3 non-profit Lupus organizations. Each year this event is successful in helping lupus survivors and families in raising funds, bringing more awareness and hope for a cure for this deadly disease. This is a non-paid charity event and all the proceeds from this event are donated to Lupus Charities through out the world. We are able to do this by bringing together, talented, giving and genuine female notables together for a game of basketball.
Finding a cure for Lupus is VERY important to Mrs. Bo Talley-Williams heart because she lost an aunt due to complications of Lupus; and 2 of her aunts daughters are currently living with this mysteriously unpredictable illness, because of these loved ones, and her knowledge of the illness, these are the driving forces behind Mrs. Bo Talley-Williams determination to bring aid and awareness to Lupus and continue to be a big advocate for Lupus.
This Charity Basketball game is not only just a BASKETBALL GAME, ITS MORE than just a game of basketball. This event has a purpose of bringing women from all walks of life together, to win together for LUPUS.
This event is a great day of basketball and fun, for a great cause!
