The night included a cocktail reception, seated dinner and live and silent auctions. Guests were able to bid on items such as signed posters, videos and jerseys, game-worn shoes and other paraphernalia. The live auction featured a trip to Slovenia, Luka’s hometown, and a 100-year-old bottle of wine that went  for $90,000. The top auction item was $120,000 raised to bring two 5-player teams to work with Coach Jason Kidd. Another $80,000 was raised for a trip to the State Fair of Texas with Boban Marjanovic.

Entertainment for the sold-out event, which was held Friday night at American Airlines Center, was En Vogue, one of the greatest female music groups of all time. They sang their classic hits such as “Free Your Mind,” “Something He Can Feel,” “My Lovin’” and their first No.1 hit off their debut album “Hold On.”

Over the past 25 years, the Mavs Foundation has provided grant funding totaling more than $8 million dollars to nonprofit organizations serving women, children and families in need. In addition to grants, the Mavs Foundation has built 50 safe Learn & Play spaces throughout the North Texas community, including 29 basketball courts and 21 Reading & Learning Centers.
