Holyfield takes pride in producing such an epic and celebratory event. ASGC, whose theme this year is “Faith and Philanthropy,” has been exceptionally successful during NBA All-Star weekend paying tribute to NBA players, wives, coaches, high-profile individuals, and community leaders who effect change in the lives of others while portraying an inspiring and motivating image. The 15th Annual All-Star Gospel Celebration will celebrate faith and philanthropy during NBA ALL-STAR WEEKEND in Cleveland by bringing together unity, diversity, peace, love, and power!

National Attention has been brought to the Christian Community in each city NBA All-Star Weekend has traveled, leaving a lasting impression on individuals who've attended these events.

Tomeka B. Holyfield was selected by the NBA All-Star Entertainment Division in 2006, to produce an Inspiration component in conjunction with NBA All-Star Weekend. For 15 years, her “All-Star Gospel Celebration” (ASGC) has kicked off the weekend of festivities. ASGC has become the flagship production within the RCM Media Productions portfolio, which provides a one of a kind platform bringing together; Gospel Artists, the NBA Chaplains Association, NBA Wives Association, NBA Players, their families, and their fans locally and from around the globe – in one arena for one night, to kick-off NBA All-Star Weekend, An evening full of inspirational praise and philanthropy. “A Party with/a Purpose”



In 2019, ASGC captured the attention of the NBA Chaplains Association and in 2020 Maurice “MO” Evans-former VP of NBPA-National Basketball Players Association joined as ASGC official CO-HOST. While their support and that of the NBA players have been instrumental, capital funds are vital in propelling ASGC to new heights in 2022! The ASGC team realize it requires the support and engagement of businesses and communities to ensure ASGC success in every market, partnerships are formed to ensure NBA All-Star Weekend is never void of an inspirational presence. With ease ASGC has historically sold out venues averaging 3,500 seats – from the beautiful Fox Theater in Atlanta, to the Joy Theater in the French Quarters of New Orleans, to the Historic Apollo Theater in New York, where she celebrated ASGC 10th anniversary. We pray ASGC 2022 is not only our most spectacular event yet, but that the evening is impactful leaving a long-lasting impression as we celebrate our 15th Anniversary! Each year we allow businesses the opportunity to participate in All-Star Gospel Celebration by sponsoring this highly anticipated event. As a Sponsor, you have the opportunity to CO-BRAND your Name, Company, Foundation with this awesome All-Star event that honors NBA Players, NBA Legends, NBA Coaches, NBA Family, Sports Figures & Community Leaders! And, at the same time contributing to a deserving charitable organization along with The HELPPPPing Hands Foundation. This 501(c)3 non-profit organization meets the needs of breast cancer, domestic violence victims and underprivileged children......Along with other beneficiaries WE TEAM UP WITH!
