Jordan Farmar to Visit Mattel Children's Hospital at UCLA
July 20, 2009
LOS ANGELES - UCLA Alum and current Los Angeles Laker, Jordan Farmar, will visit kids at Mattel Children's Hospital at UCLA on July 23 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 23 for approximately 30 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.
