Proceeds from the event went towards the Charlotte Hornets Foundation and Novant Health Community Care Cruiser; the two organizations have been partnered each year of the past decade.
The Gala, emceed this year by the legendary Michael Wilbon of ESPN, sported a “Tuxes and Tennis, Gowns and Diamonds” theme, encouraging attendees to come out comfortable in their favorite sneakers along with formal attire.
Jordan Brand, of course, was represented well at the event with the Air Jordan 1 featured prominently in various builds along with other Jordan models. However, the world got a look at footwear from the likes of Converse, Vans, adidas, and others. While there were a few limited or hyped silhouettes in the mix, the beauty of it all was the fact that attendees were able express their individuality and Hornets pride by putting their own special touches on their selected footwear — all for a good cause.
