Charmil Y. Davis Fundraiser at the Barclays Center, Dec. 7th

To support this cause, basketball fans in the tri-state area are encouraged to buy tickets for the December 7, 2016 game between the Denver Nuggets and the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Proceeds from designated tickets will be donated to cancer prevention efforts and the Brooklyn Nets Foundation.
