BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - April 11, 2016) - The Law Offices of Evan K. Thalenberg, P.A., a Baltimore-based law practice dedicated to representing those affected by lead paint, will serve as the title sponsor for "Shooting 4 Peace," a celebrity basketball game to take place on April 16 at Coppin State University. Designed to help unite Baltimore following last year's unrest, the game will feature former NBA and NFL stars playing against Baltimore City Legends. The game will take place from 3:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Coppin State University Gymnasium. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults.

During the week leading up to the game, players will visit more than 150 of Baltimore City's public schools to share positive messages on the importance of community, anti-violence, anti-drugs and anti-bullying with students. Confirmed athletes for the game include former University of Maryland stars and NBA players Juan Dixon and Adrian Branch, former New Jersey Net Kurk Lee, former New York Knicks Jerome Williams and Allan Houston, and former Philadelphia 76er Mark Karcher, among others. Former Baltimore Raven Ray Lewis will give a speech at halftime.

"We see first-hand the challenges that Baltimore City's youth face every day. We personally care about the local community and look for ways to make a positive impact," said Evan Thalenberg, President of The Law Offices of Evan K. Thalenberg, P.A. "Shooting 4 Peace is a fantastic grassroots initiative that works to make personal connections with our youth and help them overcome obstacles and see how they can have a bright future. We look forward to participating in this event and supporting other community initiatives in the future."

"Shooting 4 Peace" is a Baltimore-based non-profit initiative organized by former NFL player Ray Sydnor, working in collaboration with Sportspower International. Since retiring from professional football, Ray has dedicated his life to giving back to underprivileged communities in his hometown of Baltimore and around the country. Ray conducts mentorship programs, camps, clinics and school assemblies to spread messages of unity and hope.

"The world is watching Baltimore, and we want to show everyone that Baltimore is changing the game," said Sydnor. "Shooting 4 Peace is about hope and creating a positive message for our community. I'm excited for this opportunity to inspire Baltimore's youth and work with my fellow professional athletes to demonstrate how to overcome challenges big and small. I am thrilled to have the Law Offices of Evan K. Thalenberg as a Title Sponsor and appreciate their partnership in spreading our message to better our community."
