Titled “Project Bighorns,” this event from 6 to 8 p.m. will feature basketball, art, dance, hip-hop and trophies with a $10 entrance fee, with all proceeds going to keep Project Solution, a safe haven open for homeless and at-risk kids, according to Project Solution’s Executive Director Palkin Zed.
