HandleLife Basketball Camp At The Palace

The foster kids from Holy Cross Children’s Services were in for a treat on December 7, 2015. Not only were they walking into the Palace of Auburn Hills to play basketball, they were being trained by the elite coach from HandleLife Basketball - Johnny Stephene. Tom Gores and Coach Stepehene hosted a HandleLife Basketball Camp and Holiday experience for 50 foster children from Holy Cross Children’s Services. Coach Stephene is the creator of HandleLife Basketball. He is a ball-handling wiz with an exploding business—a unique skills trainer for the NBA's elite who's leveraged the power of social media to become one of the hottest individual brands in basketball. Tom Gores is the founder of Platinum Equity and is currently the Chairman and CEO. When he is not found in the office, Mr. Gores is on either a soccer field or a basketball court coaching youth teams, applying the same principles of hard work and inspiration that he does to his business. The NBA is a strong advocate for having their teams give back to their surrounding communities. Whether it’s visiting kids at their school or in the hospital. The Detroit Pistons are definitely one of those teams that are active in their community and have been great to Holy Cross Children’s Services. We would like to thank the Piston’s organization for being very supportive of Holy Cross Children’s Services and especially for hosting this event. We also want to send a big “Thank You” to Tom Gores and Coach Johnny Stephene for running the great Basketball Camp for our foster kids. This will definitely be a Holiday season our foster kids will never forget! If you would like to view the image gallery from the event, please click on the link below to see the photos.

HolyCross and the Stone Soup Project

HolyCross Children's Services has touched many lives, helping countless children and families in Michigan who have been abandoned, gone through abuse, neglect, and/or suffer from substance abuse, for over sixty five years. Finding their cause dear to our hearts, we are going to be sponsoring HolyCross Children's Services with their Stone Soup project! The Stone Soup Project is based on an old fable where everyone throws something into the pot to make it a great meal. This means everything from the antique car, companies and individuals’ time and services, are all donated and collectively thrown in to rebuild a classic car for charity. (more…)
