Stanford Basketball Auction For Hurricane Katrina Victims
Sept. 14, 2005
Stanford, Calif. - Stanford Men's Basketball Head Coach Trent Johnson has teamed up with AllCoachNetwork.com and coaches all across America to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
A major online sports auction will highlight the effort, with one hundred percent of the proceeds going directly to Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit organization that builds homes for low incomes families. The website http://AllCoachesCare.com has been created to provide more information on the auction and as a link for fans to bid.
'My heart goes out to all those affected by the hurricane. I have many friends and former players in the area,' commented Johnson. 'I know our staff and players have made their own private contributions to the effort, but we all wanted to also do something as a program.'
Johnson has offered four premium seats to the Stanford vs. Denver game on December 19 and will take the winning bidder to breakfast the next morning.
During Johnson's time at the helm, the Cardinal Men's Basketball program has made a renewed effort of service. Last winter, Stanford Basketball and the Sixth Man Club raised almost $4,000 for the Tsunami Victims in South and East Asia.
To bid, go to http://AllCoachesCare.com. Bidding closes Friday, September 23.
