For the past 11 years, NBA superstar Alonzo Mourning has provided many exciting activities for the shining youth of South Florida. Along with being one of the most well known basketball players for the Miami HEAT, Mourning has also made quite a substantial name for himself as a philanthropist not only in Miami, but all over the nation. On March 21, he expanded this beneficial name by launching AMC’s 2011 signature campaign, “Sponsor A-Student.”
To promote the wellness and education of children all across America, guest joined Mourning at Wayne Boich’s private home at the ICON South Beach. It was the first time that the anxious press had the opportunity to truly sit down with Mourning and retrieve the information about the new advantageous campaign and how it will ultimately benefit the Overtown Youth Center in its educational pursuits. It was also the first time to hear Mourning’s process for sending this campaign to Miami and national public schools alike. Notable guests of this event include Wayne Boich, HEAT player Chris Bosh, Sheryl Proctor, and Trina Brown.
The event was a massive success in South Beach, and it is certain that the Miami community is eager to see exactly how “Sponsor A-Student” will benefit not only them but also the young children in pursuit for an improved school system and life.
