Video Recap: #BuildPVD ‘Play For Peace’ Basketball Game

Over the weekend, Professional basketball player & Providence native, Lamont Thomas along with Calvin Jones from Camp Errol collaborated on an event called ‘Play For Peace’. High school athletes played against the Providence Police Department, to help build the ailing relationship between the cops & the inner city youth.

Among the stars in attendance like Ricky Ledo of the NY Knicks, the highlight of the evening was an open forum discussing what it takes to over come the struggles of living in poverty stricken neighborhoods, followed by an All Star game featuring New England/Tri-State Professional athletes such as Jeff Xavier, Tyrone Nared & Delroy James.
