Jimmer to Shoot 100 Threes For Utah Fundraiser
Glens Falls native Jimmer Fredette continues to make a difference in the communities that have shaped him and his career. While Fredette has multiple fundraising initiatives in the Capital District, he also works to make a difference in Utah, where he played his college ball at BYU.
And now, we get this:
Straight from the website in the Tweet above:
Fredette, who played for BYU and then in the NBA with the Sacramento Kings, Chicago Bulls, New Orleans Pelicans and New York Knicks, will be part of a three-point shootout fundraiser for Orem’s All-Together Playground and the Fredette Family Foundation on June 10.
People can pledge an amount per three-pointer that Fredette hits, with donations starting at 25 cents per shot. There’s no maximum per-shot pledge, and anyone who donates 50 cents or more per score will be entered to win one of 300 pairs of tickets. And the top 300 pledgers each will get two tickets to the event. The shootout will be at the Fieldhouse at Orem High School, which holds about 1,700 people.
It is said that Fredette usually makes between 82 and 89 shots out of 100 when he does this as part of his workout. He is also opening up the challenge for others to shoot too. They will get 25 shots.
The park costs an estimated $500-600,000 to fix.
