Deron Williams Launches Inaugural ‘Dodge Barrage’ Charity Dodgeball Tournament


Nearly 600 guests filled Basketball City in New York last week to celebrate the very first Dodge Barrage charity Dodgeball Tournament, hosted by Brooklyn Nets’ point guard Deron Williams. Williams started the tournament as an initiative to focus on supporting autism research, as well as programming that helps children with autism and their families. A host of celebrity supporters including: Jason Kidd, Paul Pierce, Katherine Webb, Jay Pharoah, Vashtie, Michael K. Williams, Nana Meriwether, Alan Anderson and Stalley were on hand to witness the Lost Angels beat the Gotham Undertakers. The winners were able to take home the Ace of Spades trophies, Brooklyn Nets jackets by Starter, and Rockwell watches. Proceeds from the event will benefit Williams’ Point of Hope Foundation, Autism Speaks and New York Collaborates for Autism (NYCA).
