The Golden State Warriors will come to Boston to play the Celtics at the TD Garden in Boston on Thursday, November 16. Before that game tips off, two members of Positive Coaching Alliance’s National Advisory Board, two of the NBA’s finest coaches, Brad Stevens and Steve Kerr, will get together for a very special event to support the national nonprofit PCA in its efforts to develop Better Athletes, Better People through sports done right. Before the jackets come off and the battle begins to see who comes out on top—the East or the West—these two special coaches will talk about coaching, rivalries, and what it means to "Respect your Rival."
One lucky fan, and a guest, will meet both coaches at an exclusive pregame reception, have their pictures taken center court, and enjoy the game from seats five rows behind the Warriors bench. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is being offered by PCA, in collaboration with Omaze (“good things come to those who give”). Fans from anywhere in the world can enter to win with a $10 donation to PCA via Omaze before November 5th. Omaze will fly the winner to Boston and put them up in a hotel if they do not live in the Boston area.
"I'm thrilled that we have the opportunity to bring these two outstanding NBA coaches together in this very special event," said PCA Founder and CEO Jim Thompson. "This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a fan and a guest to hear two of the best coaches in the game talk about the importance of competition, respecting your rival, and the life lessons learned through sports done right. Both of these men are role models for coaches everywhere, and we appreciate their commitment to supporting PCA’s efforts to develop Better Athletes, Better People everywhere kids play basketball, or any sport."
Coach Stevens and Coach Kerr are among the top basketball athletes and coaches, including Doc Rivers, Shane Battier, and Phil Jackson on PCA’s National Advisory Board.
In New England, PCA National Advisory Board members include: Tommy Amaker; Tom Beckett; Isaiah Kacyvenski; Kristine Lilly; Chris Nowinski; Bob Scalise; Harry Sheehy; Katey Stone; and Jerry York.
