On Thursday, June 28th Ludus Athletics is hosting Miami Heat DJ Irie and the kick-off event for the Irie Foundation weekend on Star Island at a private residence. This event is following the celebrations for the Miami Heat winning the 2012 NBA Championship. Several celebrities will be in attendance, including Jonathan Vilma, Reggie Bush and Chris Kirkpatrick.
Hamed Wardak, Ludus founder and CEO, said, “It’s been such a great time of celebration in Miami, but this three day weekend solely dedicated to DJ Irie’s charity is the best gift of all.”
The ultimate goal of the Irie Foundation is to increase the graduation rate among the young students it serves. It improves the lives of youth located in South Florida through extracurricular and educational activities that may not be available to them. Middle school students are mentored and if they stay in the program through high school, they will be granted scholarship money toward college or trade school tuition.
“This is the 8th year I’m doing this event, and having this kick off party couldn’t be a better way to start what will be a great and memorable weekend which we hope will raise significant funds for the Irie Foundation,” said DJ Irie.
Ludus Athletics creates apparel that is designed to complement the human form and its motto is “Love the World”. It donates a portion of each clothing item sold to philanthropic organizations.
