Athletes Charitable Members’ Events
have major impact Moments
Earlier this month, two members of the Athletes Charitable team hosted inaugural events to positively impact their communities. Stefon Diggs, renowned NFL wide receiver, hosted the All Star Charity Basketball Game in Washington, DC. DJ Reader, celebrated defensive tackle for the Cincinnati Bengals, hosted A Toast to Education Gala in North Carolina.
The Diggs Deep Foundation mission is to raise community awareness about the vital role that loving, healthy, and well-cared-for mothers play in their children’s lives. The foundation aims to achieve this goal by creating life-changing experiences that alleviate stress and help families cope with their suffering. With this mission in mind, Stefon Diggs hosted the All Star Charity Basketball game alongside his brother, Trevon Diggs, and Quinn Cook to benefit the Tender Foundation which aims to create a safety net for marginalized single mothers in the Atlanta area. This event had over 600 attendees and they were able to present a check to the Tender Foundation in the amount of $30,000.00 to support their amazing cause..
The A Son Never Forgets Foundation mission is to promote health and wellness by providing information, services, resources, and activities designed to impact and support sustainable communities. They focus on affordable housing, and promoting healthy lifestyles for children and families. Their Inaugural Toast to Education Gala raised funds to benefit the annual back-to-school health and wellness drive which will be hosted in August, as well as campus resource rooms. This event raised over $40,000.00 to benefit this cause.
We are proud of our members who are using their foundations to give back to their communities and empower the next generation of giving legends. Take a look at the gallery below for highlights from these events.
