Keith Schlosser, Lead WriterA man of Puerto Rican heritage, Carmelo Anthony has consistently been a charitable force. Every summer, Anthony ventures out to Puerto Rico for “A Very Melo Weekend,” (now in its fifth year) in an attempt to give back to the local community. He donates basketball courts, holds charity events such as a golf tournament and celebrity softball challenge, while also spending some time with the younger fans from the area as well.
That time of year is here once again, and as usual, the star forward brought along some friends this time around.
Many of Anthony’s teammates, including J.R. Smith, Tim Hardaway Jr., Cleanthony Early, and Shane Larkin (as well as General Manager Steve Mills) happened to come out to support the cause. Knicks’ Assistant General Manager Allan Houston also attended the golf tournament. See below for a couple of pictures from the festivities.
