The event, Kobe Up Close, will see a back-and-forth between Bryant and Kimmel in which Bryant will share some stories about his career and discuss his charity, the Kobe & Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation (KVBFF).
KVBFF will partner with Cedars-Sinai Sports Spectacular to help marginalized and inner-city communities.
The Kobe & Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation is working toward eliminating homelessness and is partnering with Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s Sports Spectacular to help under-served communities around Los Angeles. Through varied and widespread community outreach programs which travel to under-privileged communities and homeless shelters and offer free services to make sure kids are up-to-date on shots, vaccinations and general healthcare, we are making a difference.
Ticket sales for the event range from $25 to $200, and you can purchase your tickets here. To be kept up to date with Sports Spectacular, follow them on Twitter, @SportSpec.
Lakers Nation has partnered with Sports Spectacular to give away a pair of tickets to the event.
