Fans, friends and supporters of VIVA GLAM Magazine gathered last
week to celebrate the release of the highly anticipated Celebrity Issue with our glamorous cover girl, Leah Remini. This event was the kick off
to building the first DreamCourt in Los Angeles with Leah Remini and her friends.
Joining the team was one of the greatest figures in women’s basketball, Nancy Lieberman, along with Leah’s sister, Nicole B. Remini.¨Wiskow, Gwyneth Lloyd, Executive Director of WorldVentures Foundation, an organization that aims to give back to communities in need close to home and around the world.
Nancy Leiberman’s collaboration with WorldVentures Foundation mission is to build high quality basketball courts in disadvantaged areas with minimal material expenditure or construction costs. The goal of DreamCourts is to provide children in underprivileged communities with a safe area to play basketball, participate in free basketball clinics, interact socially and learn about teamwork and good sportsmanship.
Nancy Leiberman, WorldVentures Foundation, Leah Remini and Friends are joining together to build the first ever DreamCourt in Los Angeles at the Freeman E. Fairfield/Westside Boys & Girls Club in Long Beach.
Nicole was instrumental in facilitating this event as she volunteers for The WorldVentures Foundation and found the Long Beach Club. She searched all over Los Angeles and personally chose Freeman E. Fairfield/Westside Boys & Girls Club because they pulled at her heart strings. Nicole saw the need and brought it to the attention of her family.
Leah said in regards to making it all happen, “Let’s do this together and make a difference to the kids at the Freeman E. Fairfield/Westside Boys & Girls Club by building their very own DreamCourt!”
And Nancy Leiberman stressed the importance of athletics in young lives when she said, “Athletic involvement builds character and social skills, but children living in economically challenged communities often don’t have access. We want to help break down those barriers, one DreamCourt at a time.”
In regards to learning about teamwork and working together, comedian Billy Crystal said, “Basketball is a good metaphor for teamwork. No one person wins a championship; it takes a team. These courts will continue to bring joy and a great recreational place for kids for a long time to come.”
VIVA GLAM Magazine is proud to support Leah Remini and Friends, Nancy Lieberman and the WorldVentures Foundation to help create the first
DreamCourt in Los Angeles, CA!
