(Black PR Wire) DETROIT, MI – Non-profit organization Children To Leaders Inc. is fundraising during The 6th Annual Skills and Drills Celebrity and Youth Basketball Game inside the Detroit Pistons Practice Facility Sunday, March 27, 2022, from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm EST. Their goal is to raise $30 thousand to purchase vehicles to give free rides to Children To Leaders Inc. inner-city youth without access to transportation to and from school, jobs, events, and extracurricular programs.

Sixteen students from the Metro Detroit School District—Melvindale, Chandler Park Edison, and University Preparational for Science and Math High schools—will team up with four celebrities for a basketball game. Winners take home bragging rights and trophies, while participants will receive medals and certificates of appreciation. The event will also include networking, giveaways, recreational activities, and live performances. Children To Leaders Inc. & Thirty6Vision are sponsoring every student that takes part in the Fundraiser game to attend the “Children Outing” Detroit Pistons Game on March 31, 2022, at the Little Caesars Arena.
