The Magic of Giving

The LA Urban League Award Dinner honored Earvin “Magic” and Cookie Johnson for their commitment to contributing and empowering the underserved communities at the 44th annual Whitney M. Young, Jr. Awards Dinner this past April.  Legendary star Magic Johnson, who has led the Lakers to many NBA championships, told us “to always remember where you are coming from.”  Before he became a basketball star, he wore shoes that only cost 99 cents, wearing them until they had holes, and practicing basketball diligently in them.  He cannot forget his past even after his success, so he continues to help the urban communities and underprivileged kids to provide opportunities for success.
