Here’s a nice story on the event Justise Winslow organized in Cameron to help Houston recover from Hurricane Harvey.

Knockout Harvey brought out a lot of people and while it was a successful fundraiser, which is the main point, it was also a nice advertisement for Duke basketball as coaches and players and former players mingled with fans.

It’s a great idea and maybe Duke can replicate it in the future for Irma or whatever other emergency comes up.
