Overview

Our Social efforts are community building events that have become a Magic Johnson Foundation tradition. Many families, celebrities, and corporation rally resources help to provide children with experiences they may not otherwise receive, due to their day to day disparities in their communities.  We encourage children to be a part of their imagination and not their environment.

  • The annual Kid’s Mardi Gras has hosted over 17, 000 disadvantage youth
  • The annual Toy Drive and Holiday Party has benefited over 45,000 youth and distributed over 300,000 toys since 1994
  • Social outings for underserved youth, including sporting events such as the NBA, MLB, NASCAR and theatre events to more than 1,500 youth

“Opportunities that your organization provide change the lives of youth that may not receive that chance to live outside of their own awareness”
