Chicago, IL, November 3, 2015– Yesterday VAP Founder, Brian Hynes, and NBA super-star, Dwayne Wade, hosted a private fundraiser for Wade’s World Foundation (WWF) at Hynes’ Chicago residence. This event raised over $15,000 for the local non-for-profit. WWF provides support to community-based organizations that promote education, health and social skills for children in at-risk situations.

Wade’s emphasis on community involvement continues in WWF’s programs, which promote the education of health, literacy and fatherhood. Funds raised by yesterday’s reception will go towards initiatives like LIVE TO DREAM—a program that supports youth through training to ignite, expand and nurture their raw talents and aspirations.
“It’s always a great thing when good folks are able to come together for a bigger cause.” said Wade. “We’re grateful for the support offered by Brian Hynes and all those who attended this evening’s fundraiser.”
Wade’s World Foundation’s motto is, “Every child deserves a shot.” WWF’s charitable activities are guided by its dedication to giving back to at-risk communities through a variety of community outreach programs.
