I am honored to have been selected as a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2016. I would not be in this position if not for all my fans around the world, but especially my fans in Philadelphia.  Bringing my Celebrity Classic back to Philadelphia gives me a unique opportunity to celebrate with my fans and give back to the community at the same time.  This opportunity is a win-win. This is a year of celebration ”shared Iverson.

Allen has spent his career traveling all over the world providing hope and spreading his generosity.  And now he is bringing his big heart back to Philadelphia to benefit the youth of the community here.  Allen is now the celebrity spokesperson for (PAL) and he looks forward to this opportunity to provide funding support and raise awareness on the mission and goals of PAL.  I was attracted to the work PAL does to develop youth in our communities.  Programs like PAL are important for young people, I am happy to be a part of such a fine organization” shared Iverson.

The I Choose Life Foundation was established to raise awareness on the importance of empowering young people to learn to make better decisions. So often we hear of tragic events that happen where young people lose their lives as a result of the poor decisions they make.
