The Plano Senior High School boys' basketball team hosted a game in memory of Richie on Saturday, November 29, 2014. More than 300 spectators were on hand to cheer on the team and pay tribute to Richie. Richie was a senior at Plano High when he passed away from Cystic Fibrosis related causes at the age of 17. He also served as team manager for the boys' basketball team.
Richie's Spirit Foundation Executive Director, Jordan Herskowitz, was on hand to deliver a half time speech to honor his brother and to share the great works of the organization.
Following the game, the Foundation hosted a reception at Henry's Tavern to bring together all who knew and loved Richie. Nearly 75 guests gathered to raise funds and awareness for organ donation.
Richie's Spirit Foundation would like to thank the Plano Senior High School boys' basketball team and administrators for their continued support. We look forward to seeing you again in 2015!
