STANFORD, Calif.- Anne and Tony Joseph Director of Men's Basketball Johnny Dawkins is proud to support the Boys & Girls Club of the Peninsula by participating in Infiniti's ongoing partnership with the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), the NCAA and ESPN in the "Infiniti Coaches' Charity Challenge."
The program includes a $100,000 donation to the winning coach's designated charity. Expanding from 14 participating NABC coaches last season to 48 of the nation's top coaches this year, the ultimate Infiniti contribution will total more than $300,000.
Fan participation will determine the winner over an eight-week period that runs from Jan. 18-Feb. 27 on www.ESPN.com/Infiniti. For the first six weeks, coaches will be paired against each other in four regional brackets of 12 coaches each. Regional winners will advance to the semifinals in week seven and the final round in week eight.
Fans can vote for up to four coaches per day. The winning coach will be announced March 9.
About the Boys & Girls Club of the Peninsula
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula's (BGCP) vision is for all youth of the Bay Area Peninsula to graduate from high school with a plan for additional post-secondary education or training. Over the past five years, in neighborhoods where less than half the youth graduate from high school, 85% of BGCP's school site members have graduated from high school with a plan. BGCP is doubling high school graduation rates by implementing proven practices in strategic partnership with schools, families, government, corporations, nonprofits and volunteers. While most youth development organizations focus on motivated youth and are selective about whom they serve, BGCP serves all youth.
