DUPRI WINS 50K FOR BOYS Amp GIRLS CLUB OF ATLANTA Producer Won 2009: Charity Contest


The charity contest took place during an exclusive red carpet event hosted by NBA superstar Dwyane Wade and celebrating T-Mobile’s involvement during the All-Star
Weekend where Dupri was one of five players to shoot up to five basketball shots with the opportunity to win anywhere from $10k to $50k for the charity of his choice. An Atlanta hometown fave, Dupri now adds to his long list of career achievements. As a producer, songwriter, entrepreneur, style guru and record executive, Dupri continues to use his fame and success to give back to community organizations that helped make a difference in the lives of young people. Upon winning the $50,000 prize, Dupri says, “I’ve learned a lot as a young man coming up in the ranks of the music business and saw many examples of what celebrity really means – using your blessings to bless somebody else. Not for fanfare or fame, but to be able to hopefully help someone else in need. I’m so glad to be able to use my on-the-court skills to support the Boys & Girls Club of Atlanta.” T-Mobile created the charity shoot-out to officially launch the Shot of a Lifetime national sweepstakes, which gives one lucky winner and their fave five the opportunity to play HORSE against Dwyane Wade during the Eastern Conference Finals for a chance at $50,000.
