Just got this in my inbox. If you are inclined to donate to a charity, and love the Knicks, this seems perfect. See text below:
The New York Knicks have donated tickets in the West Balcony and provided VIP on-court access during a pre-game warm up and shoot-around to support a charity that helps kids in Haiti. This is a unique opportunity to see your favorite NBA stars up close and personal during the pre-game, which is usually closed to the public.
Want the details? On April 9th at the Knicks vs. Washington Wizards game at Madison Square Garden, you too can watch the warm-up right on the court, then watch the game from seats in the Upper West Balcony. Information about how to buy tickets are only available at http://goalshaiti.org/knicks
As if that wasn’t charitable enough, Melo, Shumpert and Chandler also donated some autographed shwag that the charity has been auctioning off on ebay. Still up for grabs are a signed Shumpert jersey and a ball autographed by Tyson Chandler. Each item comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by a representative of the Knicks themselves.
Cool Knicks shwag, tickets and a tax-deduction for helping kids in Haiti go to school and play sports? Sounds good to us.
Hope to see you at the game!
