Wayne County Kids to Shoot for the Stars on New DreamCourt, Tribute to NBA Coach Del Harris

PR Newswire — June 7, 2016

PLANO, Texas, June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Wayne County area kids can now shoot
for the stars…literally. Nancy Lieberman Charities Founder, Basketball
Hall-of-Famer, two-time Olympian and NBA Sacramento Kings Assistant Coach Nancy
Lieberman, WorldVentures Foundation(TM) and Midwest Sport Court opened a
DreamCourt at Clear Creek Park, 1201 W Main St., Richmond, Ind. Monday, June 6
in a tribute to former NBA Head Coach Del Harris. The park is near the Wayne
County Boys & Girls Club.

DreamCourts are top-quality, multipurpose play spaces built in collaboration
with WorldVentures Foundation, Nancy Lieberman Charities and Sport Court®, with
the goal of providing children in underprivileged communities a safe area to
play basketball, interact socially, and learn important lessons about teamwork
and good sportsmanship. The Wayne County Boys & Girls Club DreamCourt is the
25th court installed to date in Boys & Girls Clubs and community parks across
the country. It is 84 feet by 100 feet and has six basketball goals.

The court is a gift from Nancy Lieberman Charities and WorldVentures Foundation
to Del Harris and the Wayne County Boys & Girls Club, and located near Earlham
College where Harris got his coaching start. Earlham College VP, and former
college team member of Del Harris, Mr. Avis Stewart served as the event emcee.
“This is a unique partnership,” said Stewart, “and we need more partnerships
like this to happen in order for communities to thrive.”

This DreamCourt is partially funded by WorldVentures Foundation and the Boys &
Girls Club of Wayne County.

Nancy Lieberman shared her sentiments during the dedication ceremony, saying,
“Life is about relationships, and it’s about giving.” She paid tribute to her
friend, Muhammed Ali when talking about him and Del Harris as examples of people
who make their life about doing things with love and with a giving spirit.
Speaking directly to the youth in attendance Lieberman said, “This court is not
mine, it’s not Del’s, it’s yours. And we hope that one day you will do the same
for other kids.”

Mayor Dave Snow opened the dedication ceremony by saying, “We have been
recognized as a three-time playful city destination, and this court represents
that we are a city that provides playful competitive spaces for our youth to

Del Harris reminisced about his early years in the area, “I came to Richmond
over 50 years ago and played on the old court right here in this park. In fact,
we won a tournament here and many of my teammates went on to be inducted into
the Indiana Hall of Fame.” He went on to thank nearby Earlham College “for
taking a chance on me, giving me the head coaching job at a young 27 years old.”

Nancy Lieberman, a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, made
history this past summer when she was hired by the Sacramento Kings, becoming
just the second female assistant coach in NBA history. Following the
ribbon-cutting she officially opened the court with her signature half-court
backwards shot accompanied by members of the WorldVentures Foundation, Richmond
Parks and Recreation Superintendent Denise Retz, Sport Court Midwest
representatives, members of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce, and board members
of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County.
