You may or may not have heard of the Lowry Love Foundation, the non-profit started by former Villanovan and current Toronto Raptor, Kyle Lowry and his wife Ayahna Cornish-Lowry.

The 501c3 organization was created in 2013 with the goal of "improving the lives of the underprivileged and disadvantaged of Philadelphia - both young and old - in order to help them attain a better quality of life."

The Foundation will hold a number of events to raise awareness and funds for their mission on Saturday.
Starting at 9a, there will The 2nd Annual Kyle Lowry Skills Clinic which will be held at Hank Gathers Recreation Center until 1p. The event is free of charge for boys and girls ages 8 to 13 (registration must be done in advance).

Following that, they will be holding its 1st Kyle Lowry Community Day at North Philadelphia's Hank Gathers Recreation Center. There will be music, food, moon bounces, and events.

Completing the day will be Kyle's Rising Stars Challenge- An exhibition game featuring some of Philly's top up-and-coming high school talent coached by Philly's own Kyle Lowry and a guest NBA player.

If you're unable to attend, you can always make donations to the Foundation.
