Granderson’s Charity Hoops Event

Curtis Granderson is hosting a celebrity basketball game to benefit Grand Kids Foundation. The game will take place at Avondale High School on the evening of January 26th. The confirmed participants so far include Tyrone Wheatley, Andre Weathers, Courtney Hawkins, Jeff Grayer, Anthony Dirrell, and Rashad Evans.

All kinds of credit goes out to Granderson for being so quick to give back. Curtis only has 2 years of service time meaning that he’s only making near the league minimum and isn’t a millionaire athlete and already he’s involved.

For those worried about Granderson turning an ankle a month before spring training, he won’t be playing in the game. He and Nate Robertson will coach the teams representing Flint and Detroit and the two will compete in a 3 point shooting contest.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for kids. There are also $10 autograph tickets available as well.

Tickets can be purchased at the Grand Kids Foundation.

    Thanks for posting, Bilfer.

  2. Curtis Granderson is my hero. The only list he’ll be on is Man Of The Year. I don’t care if he hits .000 against lefties. Thanks Bilfer.
