Slam Dunk 600: Habitat for Humanity

Habitat For Humanity of WV: Providing support to local affiliates with resources, training, awareness and advocacy.  During the Slam Dunk 600 Charity Basketball Game, they made sure that statement rang true!  They were raising money and awareness for the 600th Habitat House that was to be built in Jackson County - my home County~  This event went off without a hitch and you could tell MUCH preparation and time went into the planning and execution.

Mission Statement

I was privileged to sing the National Anthem and open up the evening's festivities.  From there, the game was off and it was Team Habitat - made up of Celebrity volunteers - against the WV Blazers professional basketball team.  

During the game they opened up the court to a younger boy that was selected out of the crowd to play with the Blazers.  First, they put him through an "initiation" to make sure he was fit for the team, then let him loose on the court.  If you look at the pictures you can see a little boy in a jersey that is as long as he is!  Watch out ....he is fast and talented!


Mayor Carolyn Rader donated her time and was the dog mascot for the Blazers basketball team.  She said that suit was as hot as a fiery furnace and she knew what Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego felt like now!  She is a wonderful person that NEVER STOPS donating her time to her community.
