Post-Game Reception: A Game to Remember Richie

The Plano Senior High School Boys’ Basketball Team, led by Coach Dean Christian, will host ‘A Game to Remember Richie’ on Saturday, November 29th, in honor of former student, Richie Herskowitz.  The game versus Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas will tip-off at 2 pm at Plano Senior High School  followed by a post-game reception hosted by Richie's Spirit Foundation at Henry’s Tavern in The Shops at Legacy in Plano.

Please click here to purchase your tickets!

A $20 admission donation includes one (1) drink ticket (beer, wine, or soda) and light food. Admission to the game is a separate charge and can only be purchased at the high school.  While we encourage supporters to attend the game, you are welcome to attend only the reception.

Richie Herskowitz was a student at Plano Senior High School and served as team manager for the boys’ basketball team.  Born with Cystic Fibrosis, Richie became the youngest recipient of a double-lung transplant at the age of six in 1996.  Eight years later, as Richie enter high school, his body began to reject his lungs, and he passed away in 2007 at the age of 17, seven months shy of his high school graduation.

Richie loved the game of basketball and cherished memories with the team.  This special game will honor his life and will help to promote organ donation to people of all ages, the mission of the nonprofit organization named in his memory, Richie’s Spirit Foundation.  Jordan Herskowitz, Richie’s older brother and Executive Director of the Foundation, will make a special half-time presentation in honor of Richie.

All proceeds from the post-event reception will benefit Richie’s Spirit Foundation.  Tickets for the reception are available here.  For more information, please contact info@richiesspirit.org.
