Celtics Rondo To Host ‘Boston Charity Classic’
BOSTON (CBS) – Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo will be playing basketball in Boston this winter, at least for one night.
Rondo is set to host the “Boston Charity Classic” at Harvard on Saturday, November 19, with proceeds of the event benefiting local charities.
Rondo will not be alone, with a few of his teammates playing in the game as well. Celtics teammates Paul Pierce, Glen Davis, Jeff Green and JaJaun Johnson. Also set to play are former Celtics Kendrick Perkins, Marquis Daniels and Leon Powe, Josh Smith, Rudy Gay, Kevin Durant, Jeremy Lin and Kyle Lowrie.
With the NBA players union disbanding, and games up until December 15 cancelled, this may be the only pro basketball Boston sees this winter.
Tickets for the 6 pm game can be purchased at the Harvard Athletics Box Office in person or by phone at (617) 495-2211 between 9 am and 5 pm. General admission seats are $50 with court-side seats $100.
Proceeds from the game will go to providing holiday meals and support families in the Boston area.
