The Fourth Annual John Calipari Basketball Fantasy Experience is set for September 11-13, 2015, in Lexington.
The Experience provides the opportunity to spend a weekend in the life of a Kentucky basketball player. Attendees compete in Lexington Center’s Rupp Arena and receive expert instruction from Coach Cal, current UK Men’s basketball staff, former UK basketball greats, and other celebrity guests. The event also includes elite social events, including an exclusive dinner on the court at Rupp Arena.
The 2014 Fantasy Experience was a sellout and proved to be a tremendous success, as UK Basketball Alumni and basketball enthusiasts came to Lexington from across the United States. The event raised over $1,000,000 for charity.
“We were able to hit our million dollar target goal despite the cancellation of the Alumni Game at our 2014 event,” Calipari said. “In 2015, my hope is that we can raise even more money, while providing attendees an even better experience and opportunity to live the life of a Kentucky basketball player.”
The Experience offers a chance to be a part of the inner workings of collegiate basketball at the highest level.
Positions are limited and are secured on a first-come, first-served basis. The event sold out early in 2014, so participants are encouraged to register well in advance. For more information go to www.johncalipariexperience.com.
