Stef and Sammie1 (3)

This event is near and dear to Knight’s co-captain Stephanie Lee’s (pictured above) heart as her little sister, Samantha (Sammie), passed away suddenly at the age of 13 in June 2013. Sammie attended P.G. Chambers School from kindergarten to 7th grade.

Through the years, P.G. Chambers School has provided Sammie and many children with disabilities the attentive, nurturing care, and therapeutic services needed to thrive. Sammie’s love for basketball was evident through her support for Steff on the sidelines as her biggest cheerleader. The Lee family would like to have the event to honor Sammie’s school, P.G. Chambers School.
