John Calipari announced this morning that all proceeds from Sunday’s celebrity softball game will go to relief efforts in Baton Rouge.
“We’ve made a decision that all proceeds from this softball game will go to the Baton Rouge relief fund,” Cal said in a press conference today. “This thing is looking like the (Hurricane) Sandy disaster, almost worse than that. We’re going to go through Red Cross, so the foundation will give any money that’s raised — it will go directly to Red Cross. All of the proceeds from it.”
You can also text the word GIVE to 859-955-8173 to make a donation of any size to help out.
Very cool gesture from Calipari and definitely not the first time he and the program have used their resources to help out around the world.
