I know, I know, we’re a day or two late on this, but another round of applause for Sacramento King fans who yet again donated their hard earned money to send underprivileged children to a Sacramento Kings game. As you’ll recall, the original “Here We Buy Night” was an incredible success with nearly $10,000 dollars of fan donations sent in, enough to purchase 600 plus tickets for children/families to attend a Kings game – many of them going for the first time. The event was so successful “Here We Buy Night 2″ was created and again, King fans didn’t hesitate, raising over $8,400 dollars – good enough to purchase almost 500 tickets for local youth and their families. The tickets were distributed among Sacramento charities like the Make-A-Wish Foundation, former Sacramento King Donte Greene‘s COS Foundation, 3Fold Communications and more. All in total, between the two donation drives, Sacramento King fans collected upwards of $17,000 dollars in just a matter of days, enough to purchase over 1,100 tickets in total.
Here We Buy Night 2 takes place tomorrow evening against the Philadelphia 76ers, complete with a tailgate party.
Also – a special shoutout to Sacramento King fans @kfippin and @ed_m7 among others for being a driving force behind the idea of the Here We Buy nights. Prime examples of why Sacramento King fans are among the best in all of professional sports.
