Chris Paul had an All Star pick up game in his home state of North Carolina for his CP3 Foundation. Players included Chris Paul, Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, John Wall, Rudy Gay, Josh Selby, J.R. Smith and more. Check the video for highlights and the slideshow for pictures.
In 2005, Chris and his family established the CP3 Foundation, a philanthropic partnership with The Winston-Salem Foundation in honor of his late grandfather. The CP3 Foundation was founded to highlight his dedication both to his grandfather’s spirit and to the Winston-Salem, NC community that nurtured him from his days as a stand-out high school student-athlete to a national star at Wake Forest University.
The foundation, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the last five years, focuses on enriching the communities of Winston-Salem and New Orleans through initiatives including the Nathaniel Jones Scholarship Fund, in memory of Chris’ grandfather. The scholarship enables a Forsyth County student to attend Wake Forest University.
