Bass launches “Slams for Students”

What better way for an NBA athlete to give back to the community than by utilizing his job on the basketball court. Dallas Mavericks forward Brandon Bass, along with Hawk Electronics and The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Fort Worth, have joined forces to launch the “Slams for Students” campaign in support of the Brandon Bass Reach Back Foundation.

The purpose of the campaign is to raise funds for the 2008 Brandon Bass Youth Basketball Summer Camp that will allow selected under-privileged students within the Dallas/Fort Worth communities the opportunity to be educated, challenged and inspired through the art of basketball.

Hawk Electronics is donating $50 to the Reach Back Foundation for every shot that Brandon makes through the end of the regular season. These funds will be applied to costs related to the camp. The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Fort Worth has donated their location to host the 2008 Brandon Bass Youth Basketball Summer Camp.
