The Eastern Conference also selected the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, while the Western Conference will compete for Teach for America and the Wounded Warrior Project.
The charities will receive a total of $500,000, donated by NBA Cares and State Farm.
The money will be divided based on who wins the All-Star game and Foot Locker Three-Point shooting contest. The charities represented by the game and contest winners will each receive $100,000 per event. The charities represented by the losers will each get a guaranteed $25,000 donation per event.
All-Stars Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors and Paul George of the Indiana Pacers will serve as captains of the Western and Eastern Conferences, respectively.
