Sommerville Giving Back To Peoria

Peoria High and Bradley University Alumnus Marcellus Sommerville is putting on a Back-To-School Bash for kids.

Sommerville, who plays pro basketball overseas, says the event was his wife's idea.

"She's like, we're always doing basketball camps and things like that, let's touch them (kids) in a different way", said Sommerville.

Marcellus and Brooke Sommerville are teaming up with ELITE, Dist. 150 schools, and a number of area businesses to put on the event.

The Back-To-School Bash, for Kindergarten through 5th graders, will include a basketball tournament with the Bradley Men's Team, face painting and "Fun On The Run" inflatables.

Kids can get registered at the door at Riverplex Saturday from 2:00-5:30 p.m.
