Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation Hosts Flashes of Hope Event in Ward 8

November 16, 2018
Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation hosted families affiliated with Flashes of Hope for a basketball-themed photo shoot with Washington Wizards guard Jordan McRae and mascot G-Wiz on Nov. 3. Flashes of Hope families had a chance to play inflatable pop-a-shot basketball and cornhole and enjoy a barbeque lunch courtesy of Rocklands Barbeque and Grilling Company.

“It means a lot to put a smile on all the kids’ faces, and the families are all excited to be here,” said McRae. “So for me to be here, and them happy to see me, is an honor.”

Flashes of Hope is a nonprofit organization that changes the way children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses see themselves through the gift of photography and raises money for pediatric cancer research. MSE Foundation currently helps fund the Flashes of Hope chapters in Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia.

Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation supports the charitable efforts of the professional teams under its umbrella: the Washington Capitals, Mystics, Valor and Wizards; Capital City Go-Go; and Baltimore Brigade. MSE Foundation is committed to the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area and focuses on the following five pillars to maximize its impact on the community: youth basketball, football and hockey; education and scholarship; pediatric health and fitness; military and veterans' affairs; and hunger and homelessness.
