The D12 Foundation is Dwight Howard's Charity. It was established in 2010 and focuses on building the youth community in Orlando and "is determined to change the lives of youth in American and International communities one day at a time."
This coming weekend Dwight is hosting a Celebrity Weekend, and will be at events starting Friday night and ending in a Celebrity Basketball Game on Sunday at the UCF Arena.
Relationships determine results and due to the ones Scott has made he was asked about 2 weeks ago to produce Celebrity Weekend events. He has been working day and night since he was hired for it and when he does sleep it doesn't last long before he wakes up in the middle of the night to write ideas down:
Enter yesterday's facebook status:
I stole my computer back from him for an hour in promise of promoting the Celebrity Weekend (which I'm doing), but just thought I'd throw some fun facts about what's been going on around here:
I keep referencing Pinterest lately, but think of Scott's version as Sports Entertainment-erist. Every time I log onto my computer there is about 15 screens open with videos, word documents, and ideas plugged everywhere. Out of no where he'll come up to me like an ancy little kid, asking "what about this or how about that?" I know it's just because he's got a lot of ideas going through his mind, and besides the hogging my computer part of the process, I think it's really kind of cute.
During the last few weeks Scott has worked hand-in-hand with Dwight's team and has been a part of creating a show that Orlando has never seen anything like before. I don't know why this has never been done in the past, because it sounds like an amazing event:
Dwight's Celebrity Weekend is filled with events including a VIP Party at Roxy Friday night as well as a Celebrity Bowling Tournament Saturday culminating with the main event on Sunday: the Magic All-Star Basketball Game. This game is going to be CRAZY! I am so excited to go and am having a really proud wife moment, knowing Scott has had a huge hand in piecing it all together.
Here is what you can expect to see at this game:
- Lil Wayne coaching one of the two teams. (WHAT?!...YEYAH!)
- Old School Magic Legends vs. New School Magic Players
- A variety of in-game entertainment including:
- Romote Kontrol: famous for their appearances on America's Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance.
- Future Funk: also contestants from AGT.
- Peter Rabbit: bucket drummer who toured with Kanye West as well as award winner on Broadway for Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk.
- Street Breakz: a break dancing group from Universal Studios who has made television appearances, perform daily at Universal AND performed at our wedding!!!
- Air Elite: one of the best acro-dunk teams in the country!
- UCF Spirt Squads: National Champion Cheer Team and Dancers. & MORE!
