Wade Joins Zo in Community Efforts

When Dwyane Wade came to the Miami Heat in the 2003 NBA Draft, the team knew they had a special player on their hands - one that gave his heart on and off the court. Six seasons later, Wade has continued to be the face of the team everywhere he goes. Just a few seasons back, Alonzo Mourning found himself in Wade's position and now both players have teamed up once again to make a difference in the lives of South Floridians.

The dynamic duo has recently started The Summer Groove Hosted by D. Wade & Zo, formerly known as Zo's Summer Groove, partnering up to host a bevy of events to raise funds for the Alonzo Mourning Charities and Wade's World Foundation.

The events hosted by the two Miami Heat greats include:
  • ZSG Golf Classic - July 9th, 2009 @ Doral Golf Resort & Spa (Miami, FL)
  • ZSG Comedy Show - July 10th, 2009 @ Hard Rock Live ( Hollywood, FL)
  • ZSG Benefit Dinner - July 11th, 2009 @ Hard Rock Live (Hollywood, FL)
  • ZSG Block Party - July 12th, 2009 @ American Airlines Arena (Miami, FL)
  • ZSG All-Star Basketball Game - July 12th @ American Airlines Arena (Miami, FL)
Miami is blessed to have players like Dwyane Wade and Alonzo Mourning who bring so many memories on the court and leave so many legacies off it. They've brought prosperity to Heat fans in the form of a magical 2006 NBA championship run, while bringing hope to underprivileged people in the South Florida region.

I'm not sure Miami could ask for any better role models for the city. Two class acts with one great cause.
