After watching all of the devastation and, knowing what our players did tonight - he has offered to give $350,000 to the Kentucky Flood Relief.— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) August 3, 2022
That’s servant leadership in action, that’s staying connected to this program and this state.
Love you, Ant.
Davis donated $350,000 to flood relief efforts. Calipari said with that donation, more than $3 million was raised for flood victims.
With @AntDavis23 $350,000 donation, we are now over $3 million in funds raised for eastern Kentucky!!— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) August 3, 2022
And the part I love is that a quarter of that is from our players and their NIL contributions through shirt sales and autographed balls!! This is what our program is about!!
Earlier this week, Kentucky Basketball hosted a flood relief telethon.
