James Worthy and Joyce Sharmin (wife of Bill Sharmin) join us to talk about a fundraiser that includes raffling off Bill Sharman’s 2010 LA Lakers’ NBA Championship.

The “Bill’s Ring of Hope” raffle is going on now through November 22.  

The winner of the online raffle will receive Bill Sharman’s 2010 LA Lakers’ NBA Championship Ring, a travel allowance to come to Los Angeles (if they aren’t local) and meet Bill in person when he presents the ring, 2 premium tickets to a Lakers game in the 2013-14 season, and will have their tax liability paid for.  Bill Sharman is a special consultant to the Lakers, and previously served as Coach, General Manager, and President with the team.  He coached the Lakers on their first NBA Championship title upon their move to Los Angeles and still holds the longest winning streak (33 games) in NBA History.  He is one of only three people to be inducted in the Basketball Hall of Fame as both a Player and as a Coach.

Proceeds from “Bill’s Ring of Hope” raffle will benefit eight different charities, including the James Worthy Foundation.  (Other charities include Toberman Neighborhood Center,  Lakers Youth Foundation, Public Counsel, Angel’s Nest, Providence TrinityCare Hospice, West Coast Sports Medicine Foundation and Xcel University, Inc. )

Raffle tickets are $2 each with a minimum purchase of 5 tickets required and can be purchased at either Bill’s Ring of Hope website or http://www.netraffle.org/.

The James Worthy Foundation’s mission is to help At-Risk Youth, Military Veterans, and their Communities build an “Earned Pathway to Success” and our support strategies, activities and programs are intended to help produce this outcome. We work in collaboration with a wide spectrum of community-based organizations to provide the essential infrastructure and support tools required to empower and engage people to uplift themselves and their community.
