HNA Sports Foundation said...

My name is Dorrelle Lomax Burnett. I am the founder of Humanitarian Neighborhood Alliance, Inc., commonly known as HNA Sports. This is the only communication medium I have found to reach out to Black Give Back to share how much I enjoy the work this organization is doing and to ask for support. Please colaberate.

We have had great success in Sports Philanthropy working with professional basketball teams for three years in the Los Angeles area. For three NBA seasons HNA Sports has produced events that bring youth from under-served communities to the Staples Center once a month to salute black leaders as living examples of success. The slogan of HNA Sports is "The Game Of Giving Back".

I am reaching out to the leaders of the Black Give Back community and their members for their partisipation and support. On Wednesday, April 7, 2010 we have the Staples Center for three hours before the playing of a NBA basketball game. We need your help to fill the place. We want every youth organization, celebrity and business in Los Angeles who support the values of giving back to get involved. We have almost 1000 seats available for the Successful Teens International leadership Salute and our event tickets are good for the NBA game that follows.

We want the leaders of Black Gives Back in the Los Angeles to lead the way at this salute and allow us to honor them at this event. Please contact me directly for more information, VIP tickets and group discounts. You can also visit us at or

Thank you all for being there and for the work you have done in supporting Black Philanthropy.
