Coach K guided a remarkable evening

The Hall of Fame leader of the Duke University basketball team, Mike Krzyzewski, won the attention and hearts of those who attended “An Evening With Coach K.” Raising approximately $230,000 for pediatric brain tumor research, the inspirational event, like the legendary coach, was one of a kind. Ross captured it best when he said, “Coach K gave multiple gifts to all of us that night. He not only helped us fulfill a fundraising goal; his words and ideas filled our minds and hearts. He talked about his teams over the years and how our Rory team can continue on its own championship quest to go the distance against pediatric brain tumors and other devastating childhood diseases. ‘Our victory,’ he said, ‘will be defined by the energy we bring to that quest, our commitment and the extent of our participation.’ What a message, what a show of support!”
