Obama recauda 3 millones con la ayuda de Michael Jordan y Patrick Ewing



BusinessWeek:

President Barack Obama assembled what he called his own basketball “dream team,” calling in retired basketball greats Michael Jordan and Patrick Ewing to help him raise more than $3 million for his re-election.

Jordan, who led the Chicago Bulls to six National Basketball Association championships, co-hosted a dinner last night in New York for 120 people who paid $20,000 each to attend.

(...) Along with Ewing, who played most of his career with the New York Knicks and was Jordan’s teammate on the U.S.’s 1992 Olympic “Dream Team,” the dinner at the Lincoln Center included current NBA stars such as Carmelo Anthony of the Knicks and Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat along with Penny Hardaway and Alonzo Mourning, who are retired. NBA Commissioner David Stern also attended.
