Duke Basketball event to benefit the Emily K Center

The Emily K Center asked me to pass along the following information. This is a great cause and definitely worth attending if you are able.

On Tuesday, November 8, at 5 p.m., Duke Men’s Basketball and the Emily Krzyzewski Center will team up once again and allow basketball fans to get a rare glimpse inside Duke’s four-time national
championship program with proceeds benefiting the Emily K Center.

Guests will have floor side seats in Cameron Indoor Stadium as Coach K  leads the 2011-2012 Blue Devils in a preseason practice, while former team captain and 2001 national champion Nate James offers insights as the team goes through its paces. Following practice, attendees will have dinner in Scharf Hall with Coach K and the men’s basketball coaching staff. To cap off the evening the coaches will answer questions and share basketball stories.

Tickets for the event are $250/person and benefit the Emily K Center, a non-profit organization in Durham serving academically-focused, low-income students in out-of-school programming designed to help them achieve in school, gain entry to college, and break the cycle of poverty in their families. Join Coach K and his team for a great evening – for info and tickets click:
