The event is being held in "an effort to spread awareness and help bring an end to gun violence," a press release said. Bembry's 20-year-old brother, Adrian Allen Potts, was shot and killed while trying to break up a fight near the University of North Carolina-Charlotte campus in 2016.
Bembry and A.P. World, an organization founded by his family in honor of Potts, aim to "provide uplifting experiences that unify communities." Youth in attendance will be welcome to food, school supply and backpack giveaways and, for those seven to 18 years old, a chance to participate in a basketball clinic with the Atlanta Hawks and North Carolina high school player, Jaden Springer.
