Your Stylist in association with BLE
Good friday! As some of you may know or guess due to my height, I used to play basketball. I was no Lisa Leslie or Cynthia Cooper but until today, I enjoyed this sport and I’m glad BLE is bringing back some of the best Montreal players on the court for a positive and necessary cause.
WHAT IS BLE?
BLE (Basketball Legends Entertainment) is a committed organization whose mission is to bring back the city’s best former basketball stars “LEGENDS” to inspire and mentor the young basketball talents from Montreal. BLE’s vision is to develop an innovative basketball program with the use of entertaining basketball events as a mean of inspiration for the younger generation of basketball players. The main cause that we are supporting is the fight against school dropout. The “LEGENDS” will greatly contribute to that cause as they will lead by example by participating in various BLE Activities and play a major role in the lives of young student-athletes. Through our officially registered Canadian charity (The Eva R. Gsum Foundation) we plan to continue to help advance education by providing scholarships, bursaries, awards and other forms of financial assistance to student athletes who wish to pursue post secondary education. Throughout the year, many BLE events will be organized e.g. (Alumni exhibition basketball games, All Star games, Basketball clinics, Conferences, Tutoring Programs, etc.) Every year, the main event will be: The Annual Basketball Legends Summer Classic.
Tomorrow is a very special BLE event because Dunton which is my High school is hosting the games and also because its a double header which means 2 teams will be playing. I am part of the sponsors for this event, we will give away a few prizes!! Come support this positive movement.
Check me out at one of the games (around 8:20 min) in a mini interview about the BLE movement! You can find more info and highlight videos on their Facebook page @ Basketball Legends Entertainment.
