Help Fight Breast Cancer

Help Fight Breast Cancer

**Pledge to Help Phillies Fans Fight Breast Cancer Here.**

If you recall on Mother's Day, MLB teams including the Phillies used pink bats to help the cause against breast cancer.  Now MLB auctions is offering the bats up to the highest bidder.  The funds raised will help fight breast cancer.

I thought we could try and give Philly fans a better reputation by raising some money and bidding on a Phillies item.  I've set up a Fundable Group Action with a goal of $3,000.  If you are curious how Fundable works check out the graphic on their main page.  If the goal of $3,000 is met and people still want to donate, the amount will be raised.

The way it works: People pledge a donation to the group action, if the goal of $3,000 is not met, no person's paypal or credit card is charged.  Once we reach the goal, all of those who pledge funds will be charged their pledge amount.  The final amount raised will be sent to me, and I will then bid on one of the Phillies items through MLB auctions.  If you pledge and would like your name mentioned or your website linked to, I will surely do so here on The700Level.  Also, if anyone donates $100 or more, I will give you a free month of Blogads advertising here at The700Level as well.  If our goal is met and for some reason we can't bid on any of the Phillies items I will either bid on another item which all of the proceeds will benefit breast cancer or will simply donate the money to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

If you have any questions feel free to leave it in the comments here for all to see or email me at the700level [at] gmail.com

From my description on the Fundable Group Action:

On Mother's Day this year, all MLB teams were given a number of pink bats which were used in an attempt to raise both money and awareness in the fight against breast cancer. These bats, along with home plates and score cards, are being auctioned off to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The700Level.com is trying to organize Phillies fans to join together (and perhaps improve our image a little bit) and donate a small amount in hopes of bidding on one of the Phillies items. The minimum donation amount set up through Fundable is $10 but you can surely give more.

Caris Levert added 17 points on 6-of-6 shooting for the Nets, who had seven players in double figures while beating their season high for points by 16. Their 29-point victory was 11 more than their previous largest. They also set season highs for points in the second quarter (37) and points in any quarter with 43 in the third.

Anthony Davis led New Orleans with 22 points and nine rebounds despite leaving in the third quarter with a leg injury. The defeat was a huge comedown for him and the Pelicans a day after he was named a starter for the NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans (see full story).

Warriors top Rockets to win 6th straight
HOUSTON -- Kevin Durant scored 32 points and the Golden State Warriors used a big third quarter to build a huge lead and coast to their sixth straight victory, 125-108 over the Houston Rockets on Friday night.

In a matchup of two of the best teams in the Western Conference and All-Star starting guards Stephen Curry and James Harden, the Rockets fell short. Houston, which entered the game leading the NBA with 667 3-pointers, was just 7 of 35 behind the arc. Harden went 0 for 5 and Eric Gordon, who entered the game leading the NBA with 160 3s, missed all seven attempts.

The Magic, returning home from a 1-5 road trip, played with a small lineup for much of the night and it provided the offense they needed with two of their top scorers out. Orlando had six players in double figures, including starters Aaron Gordon (17), Serge Ibaka (13) and Nikola Vucevic (13).

Orlando shot 46 percent from the field while limiting the Bucks to 41 percent.Jabari Parker led Milwaukee with 25 points and Giannis Antetokounmpo contributed 17 points and 14 rebounds as the Bucks dropped their fourth straight game (see full story). 

Social media reacts to Mo Williams' career as a Sixer

Social media reacts to Mo Williams' career as a Sixer

It has been a crazy week for former Sixer Mo Williams.
 
Williams retired after last season, but was kept on the Cleveland Cavilers' roster in case his salary would be needed as part of a trade, and he has now been moving all across the NBA.
 
Williams, and the $2.2 million in payroll, was involved in the trade with the Atlanta Hawks for Kyle Korver, then traded to Denver before being waived. The Sixers then joined in and picked up Williams and waived him after less than an hour as they re-signed Chasson Randle to a second 10-day contract (see story)
 
Throughout all of this, social media chimed in on the career Williams had as a Sixer.
 

In 2015, before ultimately choosing the Indianapolis Colts, Frank Gore appeared headed to Philadelphia, so, fans settled the debate over who had a better career in Philly with this poll.
