Grizzlies guard Mike Conley to donate to the Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center of Memphis
MEMPHIS, April 19, 2012 – Grizzlies guard Mike Conley is doing his part to support Sickle Cell patients in need, as he will donate $100 per point he scores against the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday, April 21 to the construction of The Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center of Memphis.
Not only will Conley be making his personal donation, but the Memphis Grizzlies will also match his $100 per point to help raise funds for the Sickle Cell Center.
