Stephen Curry is a virtuoso on the court. He’s become equally gifted at taking his on-court brilliance and translating it into real-world impact.

That’s exactly what he did on Tuesday night when he, and his younger brother, Seth, hosted the SC30 Select Basketball Showcase at Kezar Pavilion in San Francisco.

Curry took the event, featuring some of the top high school basketball players in the country, and turned it into a platform to honor Nia Wilson. The Oakland teenager was murdered at the MacArthur BART station in Oakland last month.

Ansar Mohammed and Letifah Wilson, the father and sister of Nia Wilson, were both on hand at Kezar. Before the game took place, Curry implored the audience, more than 79,000 people watched the Facebook live stream, to donate on Wilson's behalf.

The results? More than $21,000, as of Wednesday afternoon.

Curry’s efforts are making a world of difference.

"This is what's keeping me and my family so strong," Wilson's father said, per NBC Bay Area. "All the support from giants like Stephen Curry and abroad, that's what's keeping us strong at the moment."
