Nash Bash to Highlight NBA All-Star Weekend...

Are you looking to benchmark the efforts of a well-run charitable organization? Is your charitable organization looking to capitalize around All-Star festivities?

Established in 2001, the Steve Nash Foundation is an incredible private charitable foundation that has truly impacted the lives of many. Steve Nash has successfully built and supported his foundation with a number of key initiatives, including Football for Good, Make an Assist, and Youth Juenes Basketball.

Next weekend, the Steve Nash Foundation is teaming up with VitaminWater to steal the show at the 2009 NBA All-Star Game in Phoenix, Arizona with the inaugural Nash Bash event. While full details of the event have yet to be disclosed, the Steve Nash Foundation is planning for the event to be an unforgettable night at The Mondrian in Scottsdale, Arizona. With all proceeds benefiting the Foundation's local Educare Arizona initiative, Steve Nash will be on-hand welcoming guests willing to pay $1,300 to attend the Nash Bash event and/or $13,000 for the gathering dinner taking place beforehand.

VitaminWater is supporting the event in a unique way by auctioning off thirteen (13) select bottles (starting at a bid of $250), offering bidders a chance to meet Nash himself at the Nash Bash.  

If you haven't had a chance, you need to check out the Steve Nash Foundation's webpage. The site is definitely a best-in-class example for charities looking to drive awareness/support for their initiatives.
