Thanks to all who came out to High Rollers Luxury Lanes & Lounge at Foxwoods Resort Casino for my USI Presents “The Truth Strikes Again” with Foxwoods Resort Casino. It was a great time and I’m glad me and my teammates and friends from Boston sports teams and local celebrities were able to come out and have a great time while raising money for my foundation.
The event raised more than $300,000 for The Truth Fund, which I launched in May of 2002 to provide educational and life-enriching opportunities for underprivileged youth. The funds will support my Truth on Health Campaign, which empowers and encourages young people to lead healthier lifestyles.
We had a great lineup of celebrities who bowled for the cause included KG, Perk, Glen Davis, Avery Bradley and Marquis Daniels; Tyronn Lue and Dana Barros came out and so did Kevin Youkilis.
I can’t forget Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos who’s always been a big supporter of the team. And my guy Chef Ming Tsai. Ayla Brown; Akrobatik; Greg Dickerson; JAM’N 94.5’s Ramiro.
And Billy Costa from KISS? He killed it as our emcee and auctioneer. Thanks Billy.
