In April our Outreach and Tracking Programs in Dallas went to see the Dallas Mavericks’ final game against the San Antonio Spurs. Our kids were inspired by Dallas Maverick player Caron Butler. Caron was in and out of detention as a youth, and has since turned his life around. Our group was treated like VIP’S including being given free t-shirts.

We were invited to watch the shoot-around where we saw Manu Ginobli, Tony Parker, Jason Terry and we also had the pleasure of meeting Marc Cuban, the owner of the Mavericks. And at the end of the game our group was invited to take a picture on the center court.  Thank you to the Dallas Mavericks for your attention and kindness!

Our youth had a great time watching the game and learning about Caron Butler’s story, as they too are on their way to turning their lives around and becoming successful young adults.
