Celebrities from all walks of life came together on Saturday to support a great cause and shoot some hoops.
CC Sabathia and Robinson Cano’s foundations, RC22 and PitCCH in Foundation, co-sponsored a charity basketball game recruiting celebrities for star-studded rosters of Team Cano versus Team Sabathia. On Team Cano was Team Captain Kevin Durant, alongside Seattle Mariner Felix Fernandez, rapper Fabolous, DJ Khaled and more. For Team Sabathia, Carmelo Anthony wore the C and led teammates such as baseball legend Derek Jeter, singer Ne-Yo, Jersey Shore’s Vinny Guadagnino, and more.
Aside from the celebrities on the court, there were many that bought tickets to attend and support the cause from the stands. Rihanna was there watching ex-boyfriend Chris Brown shoot some hoops. The Master of Ceremonies Angie Martinez led the event and, of course, the brains behind the event, Jay-Z, was in attendance.
In the end it was Team Cano who lifted the trophy at Barclay’s Centre and came away as champions of the Summer Classic Charity Basketball game, but the real winners were Cano and Sabathia’s foundations for raising over a million dollars for a great cause.
