Boston University men's basketball head coach Joe Jones will join the other six Division I men's basketball coaches in Massachusetts for the second annual Coaches vs. Cancer Tip-Off Breakfast on Thursday, Sept. 26 at TD Garden.
ESPN's Jeff Goodman will host the event, which will feature special guest Brad Stevens, who was named the 17th head coach of the Boston Celtics back in July. Goodman will moderate a discussion about NCAA basketball in Massachusetts and around the country.
Steve Donahue (Boston College), Tommy Amaker (Harvard), Bill Coen (Northeastern), Derek Kellogg (UMass), Milan Brown (Holy Cross) and Pat Duquette (UMass Lowell) will join Jones, Goodman and Stevens in the Legends Room at TD Garden.
Proceeds from the breakfast will benefit Coaches vs. Cancer, a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) that empowers basketball coaches, their teams and local communities to make a difference in the fight against cancer.
The program leverages the personal experiences, community leadership and professional excellence of basketball coaches nationwide to increase cancer awareness and promote healthy living through year-round awareness efforts, fundraising activities and advocacy programs.
Tickets for the breakfast are $100, with proceeds benefitting the Coaches vs. Cancer program. To reserve a spot, contact Katy Meagher at 508.270.4618 or email@example.com. For more information or to buy a ticket online, visit http://coaches.acsevents.org/tipoff
