Is it just us, or is Dwyane Wade always flashing that beautiful smile?? Even during his games, we can tell there's a smile lurking under that super-serious game face! LOLz!
THIS is something to smile about! Dwyane hosted his 6th Annual All-Star Weekend charity events during NBA All-Star Weekend in Houston, TX this past weekend. His mission, as always, was to raise money for charities and to encourage fathers to play an active role in the lives of their children.
If you didn't know, Dwyane is an awesome dad!
Here's what he did:
On Friday, he held a meet and greet with Make-A-Wish children and their families. Afterwards, he hosted a Fatherhood and Family Panel Discussion addressing the fatherlessness issue across the country. The panelwas moderated by Soledad O’Brien and Pastor Carl Lentz. Then, Dwyane celebrated his landmark partnership with LI-NING on the creation of the new athletic footwear and apparel brand called WADE. The celebration featured performances by T.I. and special guests included Ludacris, Gabby Douglas, Common, Queen Latifah, and Alonzo Mourning.
On Saturday, for the sixth year in a row, he hosted his “All-Star Luncheon.” All funds raised by the Wade’s World Foundation from this event went to directly support the Houston-based charity Houston Early Age Risk Testing & Screening!
SUCH A WONDERFUL WAY TO SPEND A WEEKEND!
We're so happy he's so involved — it would be much easier just to ignore all of this and bask in the windfalls of his career.
Keep it up, Dwayne! More pics (below) for your beautiful eyes!!
