The Memphis Grizzlies Charitable Foundation hosted a special holiday event for the youth and mentors in the Grizzlies TEAM Mentoring Program in the Grand Lobby of FedExForum with a special surprise guest appearance from Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley.

The event allowed the parents, mentors and mentees of KIPP Collegiate Middle School, The Soulsville Charter School and Power Center Academy Middle School to mix and mingle with Mike Conley, Grizz and the Grizz Girls. During the program, Conley addressed the crowd on the importance of being a mentor and how it has made a difference in his life.

Youth and mentors enjoyed food, games and raffle drawings for special Grizzlies items. Happy Holidays to all of our wonderful mentors and scholars!
