Miami Heat Guard, Dwyane Wade, Hosts Charity Luncheon During NBA All-Star Weekend

miami-heat-guard-dwayne-wade-hosts-charity-luncheon-during-nba-all-star-weekend-3On Saturday, February 16, 2013, NBA All-Star Dwyane Wade hosted a charity luncheon to honor his Wade’s World Foundation’s 10 years of community service. Funds raised during the event will support the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Houston Early Age Risk Testing & Screening (HEARTS).

“I live by the motto, ‘To whom much is given, much is required,’” said Wade. “That’ why it’s important for me to give back to the community.”

Several high-profile celebrities such as Pat Riley, Yao Ming, and Spike Lee attended the luncheon.

“I’m proud of Dwyane and all of the things he’s accomplished,” said Riley. “I’ve watched him mature so much over the years. Not only is he a great humanitarian, but he is also a great basketball player. Everyone in Miami loves him so much. We hope he’s still playing for the team when he’s 40.”
