Juneteenth represents the joy of freedom – the chance for a new beginning!
Nancy Lieberman Charities, has teamed up with former NBA & All Star athlete Caron Butler, Sport Court ®, and the City of Racine to provide a new Dream Court at Roosevelt Park, 601 21st St. in Racine. There will be a mini basketball clinic with Caron Butler, and an opening ceremony for the Dream Court.
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED to participate in the basketball clinic. Space is limited to 60 school aged youth. As we anticipate the clinic will fill up, we are NOT able to guarantee participation for anyone not registered.
Other activities include basketball games, children’s corner, car show, women’s wellness workshop with Dr. Keita Joy, and a “Making Wise Choices” workshop for teens. Essay contest winners are invited to read their essays at the opening ceremony.
Children MUST submit their typed essays to the Dr. John Bryant Community Center (601 21st St. Racine, WI 53403) by June 5th, 2019. To ensure we remain on schedule, children who have not submitted an essay by the deadline and been selected, will not be able to read their essay at the event.
