Maybach Music Group member Meek Mill may be a global star now but that's not keeping him from showing love to his Philadelphia city by putting together a sports and entertainment event.
While the main line-up of invited guests still remain a mystery, the August 30 event is expected to showcase a wide range of high-profile entertainers.
Dream Chasers Sports and Entertainment Summit is to bring together some of the biggest names in both sports and entertainment to discuss everything from chasing dreams successfully to what it takes to make it in the industry as an athlete, musician, entrepreneur and business executive. The infusion panel will focus on "dream chasing" and looks to ignite the spark in all generations to go after their goals, no matter what those goals may be. (Dream Chasers Summit)
Tickets for the charity event are expected to be available this weekend.
Proceedings on tap will include panel discussions, interactive experiences and a live concert. Master P, Philadelphia Sixers' Thaddeus Young as well as Cleveland Cavaliers point guard, Dion Waiters are the first celebrities to be announced as participants. There will be approximately 30+ other panelists who will be revealed by Meek in the upcoming days. The Summit will take place on August 30, 2013 from Noon-7:00 p.m. EST at the Temple Performing Arts Center in Philadelphia. Interested parties can purchase tickets from the website tomorrow for one (sports or entertainment) or both summits. (XXL Mag)
