Our Breakfast of Champions is Thursday, Oct 26 at 7:30 am at The Loft at Chelsea Piers CT
Kids Helping Kids is hosting a themed celebrity breakfast featuring former UConn men's and women's basketball players that will be tied to the kickoff of the college basketball season. Suggested donation is $100 per person.
Featured speakers for the breakfast are Chris Smith, the school's all-time leading scorer for the men's team, and Rashamel Jones, who was a co-captain for the 1999 Huskies that won the school's first of five NCAA titles. For the women's program, three-time national champion Maria Conlon will be on hand to lend her insight into what's in store for the team.
While the trio of UConn greats had storied accomplishments on the court, all three have also had successful coaching careers at the youth, high school, and college levels. They will each talk about their experiences in assuming strong leadership roles to deliver a message that dovetails with KHK's mission of developing the next generation of leaders through youth-led service projects.
The event will also have UConn and basketball memorabilia items and game tickets available for bidders at silent and live auctions.
