This past weekend in L.A. Jamie Foxx held his 3rd annual Summer Slam charity event. The day started at noon with a 3 on 3 tournament as well as a live auction. Several of your favorite NBA stars were on hand to participate as well as donate money. There were two 3 on 3 tournaments, one featuring celebrities vs. celebrities and one featuring NBA players vs NBA players with each NBA team also having a celebrity coach. The event was sponsored by Under Armour
Proceeds from the event raised nearly 1/2 million dollars for the Jamie Foxx Foundation and the Pacific Lodge Youth Services.

Did I mention this event took place at a house. Of course there was an after party, the event wouldn’t be complete without that. Can’t be mad at hoops and a soiree all for a greater purpose!
