Raised in the Charlotte, N.C. area Steph Curry attended school there and credits the community and the people of Charlotte for helping mold him into the man he is today. To celebrate his homecoming for NBA All-Star 2019, he wanted to make sure to give back and show some home court love.
With help from Under Armour, Chase and Charlotte Housing Authority, the Stephen and Ayesha Curry Family Foundation unveiled a revitalization of the Carole Hoefener Center, a renovation that included the gymnasium, education center, kitchen and much more.
“We chose the Carole Hoefener Center because their priorities are similar to my family’s priorities: equal opportunities for education, access to and more knowledge about nutrition and wellness and having a safe and inspiring place to play. I am excited to see my hometown community engage in the new space, and we deeply believe in its ongoing impact.”
In attendance for the big reveal was Stephen, Ayesha, Dell, Sonya, Seth and Damion Lee and Sydel Curry-Lee. Stephen, Seth and Dell all participated in a Shooting Stars competition co-sponsored by Eastbay x Champs Sports and a slam dunk showcase by the Flight Brothers wowed the crowd. The event wrapped with a special performance by Lil Yachty.
