Carrying on the legacy of the Dinner Gala event for WSA’s 22nd installment of the Roy Firestone Award, the organization will be honoring Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
WSA could not be more excited to partner with the UCLA Bruins and Los Angeles Lakers legend. Abdul-Jabbar won three consecutive NCAA Championships in ’67, ’68, and ’69, while being recognized a record three times as MVP. He went on to win six NBA Championships in ’71, ’80, ’82, ’85, ’87, and ’88 while earning six MVP award honors. Since his basketball career, Kareem has accomplished as much as any former athlete and was recently awarded with the nation’s highest civilian honor, The Presidential Medal of Freedom, by President Barack Obama last year.
Westcoast Sports Associates has allocated over $3.5 million in grant awards since 1996, helping community-based organizations and City of LA Recreation Centers make high-quality youth sports accessible. In 2017, $272,000 has been awarded to 27 organizations making these programs accessible to over 10,000 young people every year.  This impact is possible due to the many generous sponsor groups who participate in the annual Dinner Gala & Roy Firestone Award event. We hope you consider contributing in one of the following ways:
