WHAT:

Los Angeles Lakers player Jordan Farmar will host his second annual reunion luncheon at UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital for approximately 30 pediatric patients and family members who participated in his Making Dreams Come True program during the past two NBA seasons. Farmar will also visit additional pediatric patients at their bedsides and deliver goodie bags.

The Making Dreams Come True program allows patients and family members to attend a Lakers game and participate in a meet-and-greet with Farmar and other players after the game. A former UCLA basketball star, Farmar established the nonprofit Jordan Farmar Foundation to support charitable programs that build values, develop character, create opportunities and promote positive attitudes, with an emphasis on youth sports programs in Southern California. The UCLA Health is the "official health system of the Los Angeles Lakers."
