Twitter addicts, basketball lovers, beer freaks and above all, friends of Daniel Babara, (former Uganda Martyrs University student who was gunned down by a trigger happy security guard at Buloba Beach recently) flocked Bush Court for the Hoops for Grace Charity event last Saturday.
The friends of Babara who was also known as Danje played in memory of their fallen teammate, who was also the captain of the UMU Flames, the university basketball team. Team Danje observed a moment of silence for Babara before kicking off their basketball action, and they went all the way to the finals. They were unfortunately beaten to the trophy by Team Barefoot Lawyers that seemed too good from the get-go.
The annual event is organised by a group of youth, 40 days, 40 smiles. Over Shs5m was raised, to benefit Akiba Bless A Child Foundation, a home for children undergoing cancer treatment.
