Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat arrives on the red carpet.


‘Hoop Heroes’

Chris Bosh, LeBron James and Thaddeus Young were among the professional basketball players honored as “Hoop Heroes” at a fundraiser to benefit Arnold Schwarzenegger’s After-School All-Stars organization. The former California governor and Hollywood action star founded ASAS to provide free, daily after-school programs to urban youths. The event was held at Universal CityWalk’s Rising Star nightclub Feb. 24.

Downtown Orlando was hopping with invitation-only parties during the NBA All-Star Weekend, Feb. 24-26. At “Jocktails,” sponsored by Premier Beverage Co. of Florida, some NBA players took turns as bartenders to help raise money for a South Florida-based children’s charity. Among them was retired Miami Heat great Tim Hardaway.
