Event: LA Stars Celebrity All Star Charity Weekend

On August 3-5, NBA players Baron Davis and Paul Pierce hosted the LA Stars Celebrity Charity All Star weekend. This event is a continuation of Magic Johnson's Midsummer Nights Magic, a fundraiser that benefited the Los Angeles area for twenty years.

The mission of LA Stars is to give back to the youth that need community-based programs and health-related resources.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Team Play (the Baron Davis Foundation), the Paul Pierce Truth Foundation, Zero to Hero (Gilbert Arenas' foundation) and the Magic Johnson Foundation.

The events for the charity weekend included the legacy project, a community service project; the LA Stars carnival; the 2nd annual LA Stars Celebrity basketball game; and LA Stars' on Rodeo, a casino-style evening of fashion, music and casino games on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. On August 3rd, Fendi sponsored a reception for the charity event:
