"Turiaf coming to Hoopfest
Basketball: Former Gonzaga standout and current New York Knicks player Ronny Turiaf is partnering with Hoopfest to build an outdoor basketball court at a location to be determined, raise funds for his Heart to Heart Foundation and make several appearances at Nike Center Court during the Spokane 3-on-3 tournament.

“A Night with Ronny Turiaf” benefit will be held at 7 p.m. June 24, at The Lincoln Center. Turiaf’s foundation provides health services, including EKGs, heart surgeries and defibrillators to children in need."

How are you looking to expand your foundation and bring more attention to heart awareness?
I'm going to my [former college Gonzaga] in June in Spokane, Washington, to do a couple of really good things. I'm partnering with Hoopfest, a 3-on-3 tournament that has hundreds of thousands of people play. It's like Hoop it Up. I'm going to do a court unveiling, we're going to do a charity dinner at my school to try to raise money for my foundation and the American Heart Association. We have two different events as far as echocardiograms, but they're not set in stone. We're still trying to figure out how many students we're going to have. It's gong to be a weekend of festivities, but also I'm just trying to help people and hopefully save lives.

Ronny is awesome. He also played a solid game 1 against the Celtics.
