Philanthropy Rumors

During pre-game activities of Game 4, the Atlanta Hawks will make a donation of musical instruments to the Atlanta Music Project’s newly-formed percussion program. Founded in 2010, the Atlanta Music Project provides intensive, tuition-free, music education to underserved youth right in their neighborhood and is launching a new percussion-focused program. AMP provides all students with an instrument, a teaching artist, classes and unique performance opportunities.
Last summer, Mike Conley signed the biggest contract in NBA history to date. The deal was worth $153 million over five years. And if you’ve seen any of the Grizzlies games during the playoffs, you’re already aware that his contract is always a topic of discussion. What does someone do with all that money? For one, you buy your fans tickets to the playoffs. Conley purchased 500 tickets for Thursday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs, the team’s first home game in the 2017 playoffs, and the team will raffle them off on Wednesday.
