The Family Over Everything Foundation, established by NBA stars Marcus and Markieff Morris and their family, treated six single mothers facing hardship to a day of pampering at the organization’s second annual “All-Star Treatment for All-Star Moms” event on February 15 during NBA All-Star Weekend in Charlotte.
Hosted at Cachet Nail Boutique in Charlotte’s upscale SouthPark neighborhood, the event featured hair styling, manicures, pedicures, makeup, massages and dessert, all graciously donated by local providers. Afterwards, the women dined together at Del Frisco’s, accompanied by Thomasine Morris, mother of Marcus and Markieff, as well as the mothers of NBA players James Harden, Kemba Walker, Donovan Mitchell, Chris Paul and Gerald Henderson Jr.
The Family Over Everything Foundation selected the participants with the help of local nonprofit organizations Peaceful Places, Inc., Safe Alliance and Florence Crittenton, which all provide services to single mothers affected by domestic violence and other hardship. While the women enjoyed the day’s physical luxuries, they expressed their greatest appreciation for the fellowship provided by the event — something not afforded to most of the women due to their time constraints as single moms.
Established in 2017 with a mission to support single parents in underserved communities, the Family Over Everything Foundation held its first “All-Star Treatment for All-Star Moms” event last year during NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles. The foundation plans to continue hosting the event every year during NBA All-Star Weekend for struggling single mothers in cities around the country.
