magic johnson meet and greetOn February 12 NBA legend Magic Johnson was in Fort Myers, Florida for a fundraiser event to benefit the Quality Life Center. The gates at STARS Complex on Edison Avenue opened at 5 p.m. for a party in the park and Johnson spoke at 7:30 p.m. following a private VIP meet-and-greet at the Dr. Carrie Robinson Center.

The motivation behind Johnson’s appearance at the Quality Life Center comes from his involvement in an after school “drop in” center and the Boys and Girls Club in his hometown of Lansing, Michigan. Johnson credits his success as an NBA legend, sports analyst, and entrepreneur to his involvement with this organizations as a young man. “I’m living proof of the impact these types of community organizations can have on a kid,” he said. “They kept me out of trouble and helped me develop the work ethic not only to perform well in basketball but as a businessman.”

When the opportunity to help support the Quality Life Center in the Dunbar community came to his attention Johnson jumped at the opportunity. “I love that they’re right in the heart of the community,” Johnson said. “Kids need a place to go to where they feel safe but also one that can give them the proper tools to navigate through life. This isn’t about Magic Johnson but the work the Quality Life Center is doing for kids.”

The values that Johnson learned from the after school “drop in” center and Boys and Girls club in Lansing have led him to be one of the most successful athletes and entrepreneurs in the world. After a successful career in the NBA in which he won three MVP awards and earned 12 All-Star appearances he became a successful basketball analyst at ESPN and is currently a part owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
