 PHOENIX SUN'S KEVIN JOHNSON TO JOIN NESTLE USA
 AT NATIONAL URBAN LEAGUE CONVENTION
 SAN DIEGO, July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Phoenix Sun's point guard Kevin Johnson will sign autographs at the Nestle USA booth during the National Urban League Convention on Tuesday, July 28, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the San Diego Convention Center.
 The NBA star was recently selected as the honorary chairman for The Nestle Chocolate Very Best in Youth Program(TM), a corporate-sponsored program designed to build self-esteem in young people.
 Now in its second year, the program provides youth in 15 U.S. cities with $10,000 grants and allows them to decide how to use the money to improve their communities.
 According to Frank Arthofer, president, Nestle Chocolate & Confection Co., "We chose Kevin because of his devotion and commitment to helping young people feel a sense of accomplishment."
 A group of young people from San Diego, participating in The Nestle Chocolate Very Best in Youth Program, will join Johnson. "It is imperative that young people understand the importance of developing self confidence and commitment to themselves and their community. That's what is so unique about The Nestle Chocolate Very Best in Youth Program, and why I am so excited about my involvement on a national level," said Johnson.
 Nestle has supported community service and the National Urban League for several years. In addition to Johnson signing autographs at the convention, Nestle USA will distribute copies of its inspiring book, "Men of Courage"; a variety of candy; and materials on The Nestle Chocolate Very Best in Youth Program.
 According to Ken Bentley, director, Nestle USA Community Affairs, "Over the years, the companies that make up Nestle USA have been strong supporters of the Urban League. We applaud the Urban League for their outstanding efforts in providing opportunity for people in the inner cities across the country."
