Points from a charity basketball game in Fresno will go further than just the scoreboard.
Former NFL player and Fresno State Bulldog Isaiah Green will host the Inaugural Fresno Charity Basketball Game at Clark Intermediate School on June 30th at 3 p.m.
Green, along with NFL players Isaiah Burse with the Los Angeles Chargers, Phillip Thomas with the Redskins, Charles Washington of the Lions and radio personalities from B95 will play alongside Fresno residents.
Tickets are $10 and children 10 and under are free. At halftime, Chicago Bull Quincy Pondexter will present a $500 scholarship to a graduating high school student from Fresno. The remainder of the proceeds from the event will go toward an annual endowment to support Fresno youth.
In addition to the game, there will be giveaways, activities for kids, live entertainment from B95 radio and autographs after the event.
Tickets are available online at FresnoCharityGame.eventbrite.com or at the door. Doors open at 2 p.m. and tip-off is at 3 p.m.
