According to a press release from Best Virginia and The Final Fourcast, “Members of the West Virginia University men’s basketball team that reached the Final Four stage of the 2010 NCAA Tournament are reuniting for charity in a special hosted by voice of the Mountaineers Tony Caridi on West Virginia’s birthday.
‘Ten Years Later: A Live Hangout For Charity’ will allow West Virginia fans to hear stories from the players, the coaches, and even ask them questions on Saturday, June 20, 2020. Tickets are $10 each and will be available on https://www.jflowent.com beginning Friday, June 5.
“It’s crazy to think that it’s been 10 years since we were in Indianapolis playing in The Final Four,” said event organizer and former player Wellington Smith. “The players, coaches, and fan base have all moved on, but we all remember that memorable time when the Mountaineers were in the Final Four. A few weeks ago, Coach Martin reached out to a group of us about making sure we capitalize off of this 10 year anniversary. Since all of us are so busy we thought it would be best to set up this Zoom call. I think this will be cool to send and share with our families and the great people of West Virginia.”
All proceeds will benefit a cancer research charity established in the memory of Danny Mazzulla, the father of fellow Final Four team member and WVU alum Joe Mazzulla.
“This charity is an awesome opportunity to give money going towards cancer research, to hopefully one day find a cure,” Smith said.
Players currently confirmed to appear are John Flowers, Kevin Jones, Da’Sean Butler, Truck Bryant and Smith and many more. Coach Bob Huggins will also join the show, alongside assistant coach Erik Martin, and former coach Billy Hahn.”
This is an outstanding opportunity to re-live some great memories with some of the best basketball players in West Virginia history. $10 for an awesome charity to hang out with players and Coach Huggins is a complete no-brainer. Get your ticket, have some fun on Saturday evening and help raise money for a great cause!
