This star-studded charity event at espace (635 W. 42nd St.) benefited an awesome non-profit, the Allan Houston Legacy Foundation (AHLF). Founded by former NBA star and current Assistant General Manager of the New York Knicks, Allan Houston, the Foundation promotes entrepreneurship, mentoring, and a strong relationship between fathers and their children. Monies raised from the Charity Poker Tournament and other fundraisers will help AHLF re-engage its Business Education and Development Program, expand its "Father Knows Best" Basketball Tour and F.I.S.L.L. (Faith-Integrity-Sacrifice-Leadership-Legacy) curriculum, and more.
Guests at last night's event included the New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire, J.R. Smith, and Metta World Peace, Knicks head coach Mike Woodson, NFL stars Plaxico Burress and Marcus Harris, New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey, actors Leon and Chaz Lamar Shepard, media personalities Sway Calloway and Angie Martinez, and former NBA stars Larry Johnson and John Starks.
