MVP Celebrates Its 25th Year With an After Camp Party

On Thursday, July 18th, MVP rolled out the red carpet and welcomed the community to help it celebrate its 25 years of hosting basketball camps in Westchester.  County Executive George Latimer opened the festivities with a proclamation celebrating MVP’s contributions to the community, including giving over 7000 scholarship weeks to deserving children from the area.  The mayor of White Plains, Thomas Roach, also stopped by to offer his congratulations as did the Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joseph Ricca.

Campers and parents participated in basketball competitions and won prizes from MVP’s generous sponsors: HSS, The Hospital for Special Surgery; The Westchester Knicks; Luke Guanzon, Refinery Strength and Conditioning.  After creating an appetite through the basketball activity, parents and campers visited Walter’s Hot Dogs and Steve’s Ice Cream food trucks outside the gym.  They may have been the biggest hit at the party.  Although the dance contest at the end of the night was certainly memorable.   MVP’s own celebrity coach / DJ, Nizam Singletary, cranked up the energy throughout the afternoon.  A special thank you to Jane Haslam Photography.

MVP Basketball Camp is a 501©3 organization that relies on grants and individual donations to provide its mission.  Each summer we have the goal to offer 300 scholarships to deserving campers.  Thanks to your generosity, we have never missed our target.  If you are in a position to help us provide opportunities please call the camp at 914-946-1231 or visit our donation page:
