Nashville, Tenn. (Feb. 3, 2017) – Multi-platinum selling artist Michael W. Smith accompanied Nashville-based Lauren Uribe (age six) and Charlotte Uribe (age four) to flip on the lights of Rocketown’s outdoor basketball court, allowing kids at the facility to play ball even after the sun sets. The pair of sisters and their family made a donation to the youth outreach facility, enabling the lights to be purchased. 

Amidst the excitement, “I hope all the boys and girls have fun playing basketball,” shared Lauren, a first-grader at Battle Ground Academy and daughter of Media Executives George & Margaret Uribe.

Kids can do a variety of activities at Rocketown including sports and recreation like skate boarding, football and basketball. Rocketown is also known for their arts enrichment programs with opportunities in the youth-led music recording studio, improv acting classes, and music and vocal lessons. All programs are free of charge and open to students in 5th-12th grade.
