Respect the Game Inc. will tonight host its gala basketball charity event at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall with entertainers, professionals and entrepreneurs teaming up with selected national and first division players for a big basketball clash.
Team Bond, a compilation from Attorney-at-Law, James Bond will take on Team Toney, another assemblage from Journalist Rawle Toney in the featured game of a night that is expected to host four grudge games, spanning a wide-cross section of society.
The night bounces off with a High School clash between Bishop’s High and St. Roses with the second game bringing together the Diplomatic Corps against Starr Computers. The third faceoff will be between the University of Guyana and Qualfon.
The celebrity game will headline the night that is packed with activity for patrons and fans, who support the event. For starters, comedian Chow Pow was identified as host with reigning national soca monarch, Kwesi Ace also set to perform.
The night will be filled with entertainment both on and off the court. Pier 1 Sound will be bringing the vibes with DJs Gully Ras, Diamond and Green Dongs all set to keep patrons in the party mood throughout the fund raising competition.

In addition, the seasoned players will have as adequate backup, Javed Ali (Chief Executive of the Slingerz Sound), Faizal Khan (Guyanese football aficionado), Malcolm ‘Mr. Wickedee’ Ferreira (radio host 94.1 Fm) and Nuriyyih Gerrard (radio host 94.1 Fm).
