Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to Unveil Empowerment Center

On Wednesday, June 25th, former Laker and current Minnesota Timberwolves, Ronny Turiaf, through his Heart to Heart Foundation, will unveil a local Empowerment Center at the Community Coalition Center in South Los Angeles.

 Ronny Turiaf through his Heart to Heart Foundation is committed to creating a platform for the success of others. He understands the value of being a professional athlete and responsibility that comes with it. As such, he is committed to not only giving back to the community but also creating a legacy that carries on and inspires others. He has made a commitment to create a number of Empowerment Centers and is excited to reveal the very first one in Los Angeles. There will be two more opened up this year.

The goal is to create a place where kids, teens and young adults can go to engage in positive activities, learn leadership skills, study, and learn about healthy living, nutrition and heart health. This center is a place where we are encouraging kids and teens to interact with one another and create relationships that are free of racism and discrimination. We are making an effort to educate and end the ignorance of racism.

The Ribbon Cutting & Program will begin at 11:00am at 8101 S. Vermont Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90044. Emceed by VH1 Actress & Celebrity Host Jessica Kinni, there will be a number of guest speakers including a representative from the Community Coalition, the American Heart Association, & Ronny Turiaf. With students and teens in attendance, Ronny will speak about his journey as well as his faith in believing in your dreams. By pouring into our youth we are creating leaders of tomorrow.
