Jerusalem—Former National Basketball Association (NBA) star and current Hapoel Jerusalem player Amar’e Stoudemire has teamed with the Inbal Jerusalem Hotel to host a charity event for children in need. During the event, which took place in the lobby of the hotel on Sunday, Oct. 23, various items were sold, including subscriptions to Hapoel Jerusalem basketball games and merchandise signed by Stoudemire.

The Inbal Jerusalem Hotel was chosen to host the event because at this time of year many of its guests are visiting from North America and are very familiar with Stoudemire and his achievements in the NBA.

“All Jerusalem residents hold a special place in their heart for Hapoel Jerusalem and we are very happy to collaborate with the team on such an important event intended to raise money for children in need,” said Rony Timsit, the general manager of the Inbal Jerusalem Hotel. “We’re thrilled at the opportunity to surprise and engage our guests, many of whom come from the United States and are very familiar with Amar’e from his years playing in the NBA.”
