NBA coach Gregg Popovich to visit the region

On Friday, Oct.15, the Gary Chamber of Commerce will welcome Gregg Popovich, four-time NBA Champion, 2003 NBA Coach of the Year and current San Antonio Spurs Head Coach to Northwest Indiana. This once-in-a-lifetime event will feature a special message given by Popovich at an 11:30 a.m. luncheon, with a press conference to be held at 10 a.m.

The luncheon will take place at the Avalon Manor in Merrillville, located at 3550 East U.S. Highway 30. The price of a ticket is $35 and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Lakeshore Classic Scholarship Program for area student athletes.
The luncheon will take place prior to the Lakeshore Classic, a regional, family-oriented event focusing its activities on raising educational awareness. The Lakeshore Classic also draws on the parallels between sports participation and academic achievement to encourage the region’s youth to follow a path for success.
For more information about the Lakeshore Classic, contact Chuck Hughes, executive director of the Gary Chamber of Commerce at 219-885-7407 or at chughes@garychamber.com, or visit www.lakeshoreclassic.com.
