Among the events will be auctions of celebrity memorabilia, including an authenticated signed jersey from the 1997-98 championship season.

There’ll be a raffle with proceeds going again to Kenwood. But Mohammed is expanding the event to raise funds for three charities/civic organizations his NazrMohammed foundation will be supporting.
