Former Gator basketball great Corey Brewer has come back to Gainesville for a special youth camp. Brewer who was part of the 2006 and 2007 National Championship Teams for the Gators is holding a basketball camp for kids and teens to not only share some basketball “know-how” but to bring attention to a disease that has a significant impact on his life. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Alyssa Averette reports on this special “giving back to the community” basketball camp.[audio:http://www.wuft.org/media/audio/Brewercamp.mp3]
Hawthorne recently received a $650,000 community development block grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to expand and improve the park.
