David Thompson Named Keynote Speaker at Fathers for Hope Breakfast to Benefit Domestic Violence Shelter and Services

Former N.C. State basketball great and Hall of Famer David Thompson was the keynote speaker at the 10th Annual Fathers for Hope campaign breakfast to benefit Domestic Violence Shelter and Services. The breakfast, sponsored by Verizon Wireless, was held at 7:30-8:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 12, at the Madeline Suite on the campus of North Carolina Wilmington.

Fathers for Hope reflects a growing drive to engage well-meaning men in the cause of domestic violence. The Centers for Disease Control has recognized domestic violence as an epidemic facing women in the U.S.

“Once you have that platform of being an athlete, I think it’s very important that you take up some worthy causes. This is a problem that exists and that often goes overlooked. To be able to speak at this event, I was all for it. Anytime you’re to do something to help impact kids and families lives, I’m in,” Thompson said.

Thompson, considered by many as the greatest basketball player in Wolfpack history, was a three-time ACC Player of the Year and two-time AP College Player of the Year. He went on to star in the NBA for the Denver Nuggets (1975-82) and Seattle Supersonics (1982-84).
