NASHVILLE, Tenn., November 19, 2009 — Synergy Production Group today announced the 2010 launch of the Hoops of Hope All-Stars Tour to raise funds for projects benefiting AIDS orphans in Africa. Deemed "the world's largest free throw festival," the events will take place across 12 cities throughout the United States, beginning in April through August 2010.

An upcoming fundraising event called Twestival Local is set to take place in cities around the world Sept. 10-13. A Twestival (Twitter festival) is a global series of events organized by volunteers around the world in which they use Twitter to bring people together offline to support a cause.

The cost to aid budgets of the world economic downturn is headed for billions of dollars, slashing assistance to the world's poorest people just as it becomes harder for them to make money for themselves.
