CHARLOTTE, NC — On August 18th, the Konnected Foundation Inc. hosted its 3rd annual Pearl Oden Hoop 4 A Cause Charity Basketball Tournament at the Stratford Richardson YMCA.

Kevin Glover, CEO of the Konnected Foundation Inc., started the event in honor of his late mother, Pearl Oden.

The event featured four teams from North and South Carolina competing against one another in 40-minute, single elimination style games.

“The tournament is a way for me to bring two loves together. My mother was my first love, as was basketball. She never got a chance to see me play, but she was my biggest fan,” says Glover. “This tournament lets the community into my world and is a way to spread knowledge about cancer, gives back to the community through arts-based scholarships, and is a way to network.”
