- The Dedication of the 17th DreamCourt in Honor of Muhammad and Lonnie Ali
Sport Court dedicated its 17th collaborative DreamCourt in conjunction with World Ventures Foundation and Nancy Lieberman Foundation in Phoenix on Wednesday, May 6th. It was a tearful, nostalgic and joyous dedication, conceived by the Nancy Lieberman Foundation for Muhammad and Lonnie Ali at the Harry & Sandy Rosenzweig Boys and Girls Club.
DreamCourts are state-of-the-art basketball facilities built in lower-income communities through a collaboration among WorldVentures Foundation, Nancy Lieberman Foundation and Sport Court. They are intended to provide local children with a safe, quality place to play and to develop social skills like teamwork and good sportsmanship—away from the lure of the streets. Of the 17 DreamCourts constructed to date, the Muhammad and Lonnie Ali location is among 11 built at Boys & Girls Clubs.
