Iconic Philadelphia broadcaster Marc Zumoff teamed up with Cheesesteaktees to release one of his famous Zooisms, “Turning Garbage Into Gold”, in wearable form! Available in tees and hoodies, with net proceeds to benefit Philadelphia Youth Basketball.

Philadelphia Youth Basketball (PYB) is an innovative youth development and community empowerment organization. We use the iconic and cultural game of basketball to create access and opportunities for young people, especially those from under-resourced neighborhoods and communities, to help them reach their potential as students, positive leaders, athletes, and members of their communities. Basketball along with engaging academic modules, healthy meals, and leadership development opportunities are the means to an end that results in young people finding their voice, value, and visibility as they navigate the formative years of their lives.
