Hooping it up for change

| No Comments

A Better LA, in conjunction with Common Unity Reaching Everyone and the L.A. parks department, hosted a Father's Day 3-on-3 basketball tournament at Helen Keller Park on Saturday, yet another successful and peaceful event in a formerly gang-ridden area of the city.

In the West Athens part of Los Angeles, the event drew an estimated 500 people to the festivities, which included the basketball tournament, family barbeque, carnival games and a newly remodeled swimming pool.
