WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE  ADOPT-A-SCHOOL PROGRAM

“The Tomorrow’s Stars Foundation sponsorship of John C. Fremont PDMS has allowed our small, antiquated inner city school to be part of the community in an impactful, progressive, and meaningful manner. Fremont students’ lives are changed through opportunity and mentoring, and the Fremont family is very grateful to the NBA Summer League and the Tomorrow’s Stars Foundation for its unwavering support.”
