Balling for Lupus Luvs Foundation
In an effort to raise awareness and funds for our 501(c)(3) Lupus organization, Mrs. Bo Talley-Williams (Founder) and her husband Fred Williams, (Professional Basketball Coach (WNBA) host an Annual " Charity Celebrity Basketball Game" featuring all female players themed
"BALLING FOR LUPUS" .
For the past 9 years, Balling for Lupus Luvs Foundation has organized several community events to support entities like the Lupus Foundation of America and other 501c3 non-profit Lupus organizations. We are proud to be leaders in our communities, helping lupus survivors and their families by raising funds, bringing more awareness and hope for a cure of this deadly disease. Our annual charity event helps to raise funds and some of 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 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.
Our annual 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 come together and win together to help fight LUPUS.
