Dut Jok Youth Foundation – College All-Stars Fundraiser Event

The best college three-point shooters in the nation have teamed up with the national champion of the 3 PT contest, Peter Jok, to showcase their skills and raise money for the Dut Jok Youth Foundation!  This event spotlights the finest college basketball players from across the country to see who is the best 3 PT shooter and who can raise the most money for an amazing organization. This event will begin Friday, May 26.

These seniors have partnered to support the Dut Jok Youth Foundation and will give proceeds from this event to fulfill the mission of the Dut Jok Youth Foundation – to fight poverty and violence in South Sudan by empowering the youth to become transformative leaders through access to sports and academics. Specifically, all proceeds will go towards scholarship program and construction of a library. This foundation was founded by Peter Jok’s brother Dau, a former Division I basketball Captain at the University of Pennsylvania.
