Thirty youth were treated to school gifts, lunch and a basketball clinic with Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors Tuesday as part of a back-to-school party at Zions Bank Basketball Center.

Favors and his girlfriend, Shivolli Da Silva, hosted the party for youth participants from the Lied Boys & Girls Club. The event was a part of the Jazz organization's back-to-school outreach activities.

In addition to the clinic, participants had the opportunity to take photos with Favors. They also received lunch, new shirts and personalized backpacks, which were filled with donated school supplies.
