Today, thanks to generous contributions from donors, fans and friends, our foundation @mambamambacitasports joins @nlcharities 2✨ and @dream_courts at the historic Tustin Playground. Khloe, beautifully surrounded by @Art_by_Ernel’s artwork,” she wrote.

“I chose this location so that the youth of this community can have a safe place to play with equal opportunity which was important to Kobe and Gianna,” Vanessa, pictured wearing Kobe’s high school varsity jacket, shared. “We’re grateful to the City of Philadelphia, @muralarts, for welcoming this project and helping make it a reality.”

The court was decorated with purple and yellow, which are the colors of the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team, and featured a series of photos of Kobe and Gianna in uniform, and posing together during a basketball game.
