PHILLY CHARITIES RECEIVE DONATION FROM LOCKOUT HOOPS GAME
Published November 16, 1999
The Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Reads and Boys and Girls Clubs of Philadelphia received $210,000 from a charity exhibition basketball game "put together" by FAME and Tellem & Associates last December in Atlantic City, according to Phil Jasner of the PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, who reported a total of $960,000 was "raised" from the game. FAME President Curtis Polk: "We didn't make a dollar from the game. All we took was reimbursement for minimal travel expenses. The players didn't get any money, other than first-class plane tickets for themselves and a guest, and a hotel room." Previous payments were sent to Child Care Matters, Trevor's Campaign for the Homeless, Philadelphia Futures, Save the Children, UNICEF, St. Christopher's Hospital for Children Foundation and the Support Group (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 11/13).
