Music Changing Lives (MCL) will host their 5th annual “Ball 4 A Cause,” a celebrity basketball game to support their music and arts program for local youth while joining thousands of communities rallying nationwide for Lights On Afterschool. The game will take place at the Redlands Community Center, located at 111 W. Lugonia Ave. Redlands, CA 92374 on Saturday, October 30, 2021, from 11 am-3 pm.
This exciting tournament will include a spectacular half-time show with live performances that will keep you at the edge of your seats, special guests, studio tours, raffles and activities for the entire family. Red carpet festivities and media interviews take place from 11 am-12 pm and guests are encouraged to arrive early.
On Afterschool is the only
nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and calls attention to the importance of
afterschool programs and the resources required to keep the lights on and the
doors open, especially as programs like MCL step up to help students, families
and communities in the pandemic. Music Changing Lives is proud to be a Lights
On Afterschool partner and dedicate their Ball 4 A Cause event to this
national celebration of afterschool programs.
CEO of Music Changing Lives, Josiah Bruny, explains “Access to
music and art programs are so critical for youth, as we have seen first-hand
the impact and changes made within our student’s lives time and time
again. The Ball 4 A Cause fundraiser
helps us to continue to change lives through the arts and we hope to have the
entire community show up and show out again this year.”
