Cool Thanks.
Now I am guessing that if one has to ask how much it is not practically affordable.

I thought I might find information about a way to donate to Ronny's Heart-2-Heart Foundation to post here, but so far I haven't found any links to a direct contribution, so maybe it's not set up for contributions from the public yet. Here's a story from August (http://www.nba.com/warriors/fanzone/dotcom_blog.html#081909).
Turiaf's Heart To Heart Foundation Partners With ASE

http://www.nba.com/warriors/photos/081909_TuriafBlog_270x315.jpg

When observing Ronny Turiaf, whether it be on or away from the basketball court, his passion for life is obvious. His energetic and fun-loving personality has endeared him to coaches, teammates and fans at every level of his basketball career. While his unique talent and all-out hustle earn him minutes on the floor, he is perhaps making even more of an impact off of it. Through his Heart to Heart Foundation, Turiaf is helping to save lives.

Earlier this summer, Turiaf traveled to Washington, DC to announce a partnership between the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) and his foundation. Turiaf spoke at the ASE’s annual Scientific Sessions and discussed how an echocardiogram, or heart ultrasound, helped save his life. Just a month after being selected in the 2005 NBA Draft, Turiaf underwent open-heart surgery for an enlarged aortic root. Doctors discovered the life-threatening heart condition after conducting an echocardiogram and performed the surgery soon thereafter.

“This important exam changed my life,” said Turiaf. “With this partnership between the ASE Foundation and Heart to Heart Foundation, I hope to educate the medical community and the general public on the significance of echocardiograms and the importance of taking good care of your heart.”

Turiaf’s foundation, which provides funds for children who need echocardiograms and other heart tests, fits into the mission of the ASE and ASE Foundation to increase public awareness about the value of echocardiography and raise funds for research and education


Perhaps we'll see his foundation take on a more public role in coming months. No doubt he'd be a great spokesperson and helping children would seem to be right up his alley.

Could not find that watch specifically, but Concord watches appear to be running between $13,000 to $320,000. Figure I might as well pick up a few of them at that rate

not :eek:
