RAPTORS DISBAND MEMBERS OF THEIR CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION
Published March 31, 1998
Of the six board members on the Raptors Foundation, "three have been told their volunteer services no longer will be required," according to Harris & Zicarelli of the TORONTO SUN. Board Chair Ralph Lean, Basketball Canada exec Sid Greenberg and Sylvia Sweeney were all asked to resign. The Raptors Foundation reached the $5M mark in funds raised last fall and on Saturday raised more than $300,000 at its annual season wrapup dinner. Harris & Zicarelli report that the Maple Leafs do not have a similar foundation, "so it's not known if they are going to place their own people on Raptors Foundation board or if even bigger changes are in store" (TORONTO SUN, 3/30). Sweeney: "I'm not really disappointed or surprised by the move, more in the way it was done. To be asked to resign without so much as a thank you was rather gauche" (TOR. STAR, 3/31). Maple Leafs Dir Brian Bellmore: "This is not a firing, it's a new ownership putting a new face on the company" (TORONTO SUN, 3/31).
