Isiah Thomas' Holiday Homecoming

December 24, 2012 02:39 PM
Isiah Thomas gives holiday gifts and inspiration to Club teens with assistance from King Club Director Denysia Wolfe.

Former Marthin Luther King Jr. Club alum and basketball legend Isiah Thomas returned to the Club in December and made the holiday season a special and inspiring one for Club teens. Isiah interacted with the young people as raffled off special gifts donated on behalf of his foundation Mary's Court, which he created with his wife. The foundation was named after his mother Mary who fought vigilantly to keep her son and his nine older siblings safe as they grew up in the west side community.

Teens were inspired by Isiah's inspirational message as he raffled off iPods, an iPad, basketballs with his signature, Avlon beauty products, gift certificates for salon visits. All teens and their parents left with smiles on their faces as Isiah made their holiday brighter.
