Former area college basketball players brought the Providence community together for a special Play for Peace event at Jorge Alvarez High School.

The event brought together children and adults for a night of basketball and a message of peace in the neighborhoods of Providence.  Former PC stars Vincent Council and Jeff Xavier were there, along with former URI star Delroy James among others.  The important night was the brainchild of former Johnson and Wales star Lamonte Thomas.
