RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The 4​th ​annual “RVA Ball for a Cause” charity game is back on ​Nov. 24 ​from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Ben Wallace gym.

Since being established in 2016, the event has provided school supplies to over 100 students in Central Virginia.

This year, Brand New Wave Cares is hosting the charity basketball game along with special halftime performances from community members.

Proceeds from RVA Ball for a Cause will directly impact less fortunate students in Richmond Public Schools with a toy drive.

In addition, the funds will also go towards assisting families facing financial hardship who are unable to pay for class fees, school lunches and college application fees.

There will be areas designated during the game for the toy drive.

Along with the toy drive, there will be kid’s activities, free haircuts and a canned good collection.

Prizes and merchandise will also be available for raffle winners.

General admission is free but attendees are still encouraged to bring a toy, canned good, contribute to the scholarship fund.
