July 18, 2008
LOS ANGELES - UCLA Alum and current Los Angeles Laker, Jordan Farmar, will visit kids at Mattel Children's Hospital at UCLA on July 22 in connection with an event which includes a reunion with patients from his 'Dreams' program as part of the Jordan Farmar Foundation.
Farmar, who helped lead UCLA to the 2006 NCAA championship game and the Pac-10 regular season and tournament titles, will host a reunion luncheon at Mattel Children's Hospital at UCLA on July 22 for six pediatric patients and their families who participated in his Making Dreams Come True program during the 2007-08 NBA season. Farmar will also visit additional pediatric patients at their bedsides and deliver goodie bags.
The Making Dreams Come True program allows patients and family members to attend a Lakers game, enjoy box seats and dinner, and participate in a meet-and-greet with Farmar and other players after the game.
Farmar recently established the Jordan Farmar Foundation, a nonprofit organization to support charitable programs that build values, develop character, create opportunities and promote positive attitudes, with an emphasis on youth sports programs in Southern California.
