Coach Grant Competing for Charity

According to officials at the University of Alabama, Men’s Head Basketball Coach Anthony Grant is in a national competition to win $100,000 for the Boys & Girls Club of West Alabama. Voting opened Tuesday for the 48 participating coaches and charities at www.espn.com/infiniti, and votes can be cast daily.

I, for one, don’t know anything about college basketball, neither do I particularly care to know.  What I do know is that the Boys and Girls Club of West Alabama could definitely use the money, and I’m all for supporting the kids.  The voting is separated into four regions, with Coach Grant in the South region, of course.  When I voted today, he only had 5% of the votes in the South.  We need to change that immediately.

Now, registration is required, but it’s not a major task.  Go ahead and complete the process so you can vote and remember to vote daily.  As we all know, our kids need more things to do in their down time.  The Boys and Girls Club is very beneficial in keeping them engaged and encouraged.

Coach Grant was a Boys and Girls Club attendee as a youth, along with other familiar names such as actor Denzel Washington and Major League Baseball player Alex Rodriguez, among many others. It is a main reason he, along with his wife Chris, have selected the local Boys and Girls Club of West Alabama chapter as the charity to receive the donation.

“It is a privilege to be a part of the 2013 Infiniti Coaches Challenge,” Grant said. “This is for a great cause and it is something that has special meaning for me. Both my wife and I have worked closely with the Boys and Girls Club of West Alabama and we are happy to provide support and assistance to our community and this particular organization.”
