A star basketball player gives back to families in need
November 13, 2011 (Newswire.com) - Professional basketball player Jason Thompson will participate in the Goon Squad Classic Charity Basketball Game on November 20th at the UC Davis Pavilion at the Arc. The exhibition game, hosted by fellow team mate Donte` Greene, will unite several NBA star players to raise proceeds for local charities, including Shriners Hospital for Children, Save Ourselves Breast Cancer Organization and Crocker Riverside Elementary School.

"The food we donate will help provide meals for several families for Thanksgiving," says Thompson. Fans are encouraged to bring a canned good to the venue. In return they will receive a raffle ticket for the chance to win a prize during the game. Donation bins will be at the entrances of the building.
