NETS PLAYER DERRICK FAVORS, NETS DANCERS AND TEAM MASCOT, MINI-SLY, BRING HOLIDAY CHEER TO LFHC AND HEALTH PLUS
December 17, 2010, Brooklyn, NY
Lutheran Family Health Centers (LFHC), NETS Basketball, and Health Plus teamed up to brighten the holidays for LFHC patients. NETS rookie forward Derrick Favors visited the Sunset Park Family Health Center on December 15 to sign autographs and help Santa hand out gifts to 150 children. Favors was accompanied by the NETS Dancers and team mascot, Mini-Sly.
LFHC and Health Plus have partnered with the NETS in the past to donate Thanksgiving turkeys to area patients and families. This is the second year the NETS have taken part in the holiday toy giveaway. LFHC, Health Plus and the NETS also launched the third annual "Shoot for Better Health" campaign in local schools in September 2010. Endorsed by the American Diabetes Association, this unique initiative aims to improve fitness and dietary habits in children. As a major contributor to the program's success, the NETS will also host a full-day basketball clinic and a reward night to honor participants at Prudential Center in Spring 2011.
