Bill Sharman’s “Ring Of Hope” Ring Raffle

NBA: Houston Rockets at Los Angeles Lakers

Earlier today, Bill Sharman passed away at the age of 87, but his legacy still lives on.

The deadline to enter Bill Sharman’s “Ring of Hope” ring raffle is November 22 and the money raised will go to eight different charities, including five that are based in Southern California. Entry for the Lakers’ 2010 championship is only $10 and each person will receive five raffle tickets. To purchase your tickets and support these local charities, please visit www.billsringofhope.com
