BASKETBALL STAR CARMELO ANTHONY PARTICIPATES IN LOCAL YOUTH BASKETBALL CLINIC IN A PARTNERSHIP WITH SANDS CARES AND JEROME WILLIAMS’ JYD PROJECT

 

A partnership between Sands Cares™ – the corporate citizenship program of The Venetian® and The Palazzo® Las Vegas – and Jerome Williams’ JYD Project created a unique event for local youth to meet basketball star Carmelo Anthony. While Anthony was recently in Las Vegas, he stopped by the Valley View Recreation Center for the basketball clinic.

 

“For me to be able to come here and be involved with the kids and talk to the kids and answer their questions, hear what they have to say, and see their work ethic…I’m astonished by that,” said Carmelo Anthony.

 

Fifty of the local youth participated in the clinic, where they worked on basketball techniques including dribbling, shooting, and passing. Anthony stopped by each clinic station, taking time to give some tips to the participants. After the drills, Anthony fielded questions in a Q&A session where he was asked about the hard work it took to get to the professional level and playing on the 2008 Olympic basketball team. He then signed autographs and took pictures with the attendees.

SANDS CARES MAKES TWO-YEAR COMMITMENT TO BASKETBALL STAR C.J. WATSON’S QUIET STORM FOUNDATION

 

Partnership provides scholarships for seniors and college students

!cid_image009_jpg@01D0BE4E

Sands® Cares, the global corporate citizenship program for Las Vegas Sands® and the Quiet Storm Foundation, C.J. Watson’s initiative to provide a positive impact on underprivileged youth, have formed a partnership that will see 10 individual scholarships donated over a period of two years.

 

As part of the partnership Sands Cares will provide two separate scholarship funds for seniors and college students with 100% of the sponsorship being used for providing financial assistance for students seeking to pursue higher education. The $10,000 commitment – 10, $1,000 scholarships – also has a community service requirement for eligibility, to concentrate on the foundation’s goals of empowering youth and fostering leadership.

 

“The Sands Cares partnership with the Quiet Storm Foundation is great for the youth of the program,” said Quiet Storm Foundation founder C.J Watson. “Our areas of focus include education, health and wellness, and leadership and the mentorship program of this partnership will enhance those focus areas, giving our youth a look into what it takes to be a leader in a major company and within the local community.”

 

The partnership not only provides a financial component, but also a mentorship program, to assist in career exploration for the Quiet Storm Foundation’s Youth Advisory Council (YAC). Through the mentorship program, senior leaders from The Venetian®, The Palazzo®, and Sands Expo will participate in YAC meetings, providing information and exposure to the hospitality industry. Sands Cares will also provide a hiring workshop, giving YAC members the opportunity to work on interview skills, resume writing, and professional development; a property tour of The Venetian and The Palazzo, and the inclusion of the YAC in a service project, with the goal of working side by side with professionals of the community, to build leadership skills.

 

“The team members of Las Vegas Sands are committed to helping improve the quality of life in the communities where we operate,” said Stephanie MacDonald, director of operations for Sands Cares. “Providing a mentorship program and scholarships for youth invests in the future of the community and the Quiet Storm Foundation strives to empower youth to reach their maximum potential.”
