"Magic" Johnson Throws An "Assist" To Help Build School In Ethiopia


 

Tenafly, NJ Basketball legend and world icon, Earvin “Magic” Johnson will visit Tenafly, New Jersey on Sunday, January 24 for Global Care Unlimited’s “Let There be Magic event to lend his hand in support of TenaflyMiddle School students’ Ethiopian School Construction Initiative. 

 

The events will kickoff at 3:00 p.m. in the Tenafly High School gym with a “Gebzha” festival featuring Ethiopian dancers, music, food, arts & crafts, drumming circles and face-painting.  The festival will be followed by competitive basketball drills for students, chosen by lottery at the event, in Grades 3 through 12 at 4:00 p.m.  The winners will pose with Magic Johnson for photographs.  A game of basketball between TMS students and faculty follows, with a special presentation to Magic Johnson by GCU students.  The evening event kicks off with a Benefit Dinner from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. with Lori Stokes, WABC Eyewitness News, as the evening’s emcee, another appearance by Magic Johnson, and a special dessert and appearance by celebrity Chef David Burke at the Clinton Inn at

Global Care Unlimited is a non-profit organization founded by school teacher and human rights activist, Mark Hyman. GCU student clubs at Tenafly Middle School and Demarest Middle School have labored since 2007 to bring a message of hope to students in Ethiopia in the form of a new school, raising more than $80,000 to sponsor the construction of 12 classrooms that currently educate 225 rural, vulnerable and orphaned children in grades Pre-K through Grade 8 in the town of Awassa, Ethiopia.

 

Now these same students want to raise an additional $50,000 to construct more classrooms through Grades 9 through 10 which will complete the school through the Ethiopian high school grades.  Ultimately, students hope to build classrooms for the Ethiopian College Prep Grades 11 through 12 and foster student-to-student relationships via the Internet, making the Ethio-American Friendship School  their ‘sister school.’
