On Saturday, May 13th, 2017 HARON HARGRAVE will host his                   3rd Annual BALLIN 4 PEACE event in Queens, N.Y. at Corona's legendary ELMCOR RECREATIONAL CENTER.  

Fans of all ages will be treated to a full day of food, fun and music!  There will be a youth basketball game, a celebrity charity basketball game, an amazing halftime show, several performances by special invited guests while Queens' hottest DJ's will keep you dancing!

World Famous DJ Clue, actor Marc John Jeffries, DJ Superstar Jay, Queens rapper GRAFH, DJ Don DeMarco, Fred da Godson, Mysonne, phresher, cast members from Love and Hip Hop NY and many more will be in attendance.

This is one of many charity events that Haron organizes to raise awareness in our community and beyond, about the violence plaguing urban neighborhoods.  

Unfortunately, Haron experienced it up close when his best friend, Mark Arrington, was shot and killed in Jamaica, Queens in November of 2007.  This affected him deeply and he knew that wearing a t-shirt in his memory wasn't going to be enough.  Haron decided to birth something positive out of his friend's senseless death.

BALLIN 4 PEACE sends a message of positivity and hope to our youth. It reminds them that they can follow their dreams and do good things with their lives. Hundreds of families and friends come out each year to enjoy the festivities and give back to the greatest cause in the world, our youth. 

All of the proceeds are donated to the H20 Sports Foundatiom which provides free basketball clinics, tournaments, back to school giveaways and other community affairs throughout the year.    

Don't miss the chance to be entertained and have a "BALL" while contributing to a most worthy foundation!  Tickets can be purchased on line at EVENTBRITE.COM.  For those unable to attend, you may give a donation on this site as well.
