DDF Tip-Off Event a Success

On Sunday, July 19th, The Dropping Dimes Foundation held its Tip-Off Fundraiser at the Arthur M. Glick Jewish Community Center in Indianapolis. The location held a special place in the hearts of both players and fans alike—it was once the site where the Indiana Pacers practiced.

During the event, fans had the opportunity to meet and greet former ABA greats and listen to the players share some of their favorite memories of playing in the ABA. Highlights included tales of the famous ABA brawls on the court, a committed fan who left little to the imagination when showing her devotion to the team, and a little off the cuff motivation from Bobby “Slick” Leonard — hockey style.

However, the high point of the evening was undoubtedly the return of Roger Brown’s Hall of Fame jacket when Brown’s former teammates were able to present the jacket to his family. The jacket will be on display at The Fieldhouse this coming season.
