The foundation representing basketball player Stephen Curry and his wife, author and television personality Ayesha Curry, recently donated between $10,000 to $100,000 to the Obama Foundation, the updated contributors report reveals.
The Curry family’s donation was the result of auctioning off customized, hand-painted Under Armour sneakers to benefit the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance.
Here’s the story from when Curry held the auction.
WASHINGTON (AP) — You can own a pair of shoes worn in a game by Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry — and support a cause, to boot.
Curry posted on Instagram that he’ll be auctioning off the sneakers he wore in Golden State’s game at the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night to raise money for My Brother’s Keeper Alliance.
He says the effort “was created to reduce barriers and expand opportunity” in support of “young men and boys of color in their pursuit of achievement and higher success in life.”
So Curry auctioned off the shoes saying that the proceeds would go to benefit “young men and boys of color” and instead gives the money to Obama. Cool.
Awful. Just awful.
