Benefit Event in Illinois With Spurs' Coach Popovich

The NBA receives so much attention focused on issues like the newly created dress code and the off-court problems of certain players that a lot of the positive contributions to society of NBA players, coaches and teams are ignored. I recently found out about a benefit event raising money for Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation featuring a personal appearance by Spurs' Coach Gregg Popovich. The event will be held at A Taste of Vino, a wine shop in Hinsdale, Illinois, on Sunday November 6th. There will be a wine tasting and a silent auction including items such as jerseys and sneakers signed by Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker, a basketball signed by the 2005-06 Spurs and tickets to the November 7th Bulls-Spurs game.

There are only 20 tickets available for this event, priced at $2500 apiece with 100% of the ticket and auction revenue going to Bear Necessities. Four tickets will be sold on Ebay, with bids starting at $500. Those who want to contribute to the charity but cannot attend the event can bid on the auction items at a Taste of Vino in Hinsdale; contact A Taste of Vino proprietor Tanya Hart at atasteofvino@sbcglobal.net
