Our Mission

Group 16 (1).png

Promote education, economic development and diversity while raising money for scholarships and institutions of higher learning.

Party with a Purpose

The 2nd Annual College Basketball All-Star Game & Extravaganza will be held Saturday, April 22, 2023 at Schottenstein Center, on the campus of The Ohio State University. All-Star Game & Extravaganza offers an entire day of educational, cultural and entertainment festivities—everything you expect from an HBCU Classic.

The main attraction is the game when top seniors from Historically Black Colleges & Universities around the country (HBCU All-Star Team) vs. dynamic players from universities across Ohio (Ohio All-Star Team). And a world-class postgame show featuring a famous R&B recording artist live in concert.

  • Associate your brand with an HBCU event where more than 25 colleges and universities participate.

  • Connect with the African American community by planning an engagement activation at the All-Star Game & Extravaganza
