Boston Community Collaborative coordinated an amazing on-court opportunity for kids at Sunday’s Celtics game vs the Orlando Magic. Eighteen lucky kids got to experience playing on the parquet and the High Five tunnel before the game!

Some of the notable highlights of the event: They got to play on the parquet!!! They also got to see lots of behind the scenes activity in the media area including flip dunkers’ warmups and warmups by the dance troupes from Phunk Nation and by the Celtics cheerleaders. They saw the players up close and personal, and were very impressed by the size of the massive NBA players. BCC is thrilled to be able to facilitate such a cool opportunity for these kids.
