...for the Boys & Girls Club of America. These guys are really big Magic fans. And when we say really big, we mean Matt cried so hard after they lost game 1 of the 1988 NBA Finals, his parents let him stay home from school the next day. He was 12.
So you can imagine how pumped they were for the chance to join their childhood hero courtside at a Laker game and then get dinner after. They thought about how amazing it’d be to win, to hang out with the man they idolized, to ask him everything about everything.
And then the auction got started. As broke college students, Matt and Ryan could do nothing but watch helplessly as the bidding reached $15,000.
On the drive home, they couldn’t stop talking about it. Why should life’s most amazing experiences only go to the rich? How could the most awesome prize in the history of mankind only raise $15,000 for such a great cause?
