Former Vice President Joe Biden spent Saturday evening at a Delaware 87ers game, but tonight was about much more than basketball.

During halftime, the Philadelphia 76ers organization donated $20,000 to the Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children.

The organization, started by Joe Biden's late son, is dedicated to fighting child abuse and neglect by focusing on education, as well as strengthening child protection laws.

"There's a tendency to say, 'No, that's not my business, that's a family issue.' A child abused is not a family issue. A child abused, these are all our children. They are the kitestrings that lift our national ambitions aloft," said Biden.

In addition to the donation, a portion of Saturday night's ticket sales went to the Beau Biden Foundation.
