Paul’s Latest Blog Post: The Truth struck again (Boston.com)

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

Thanks to all who came out to High Rollers Luxury Lanes & Lounge at Foxwoods Resort Casino for my USI PresentsThe Truth Strikes Again” with Foxwoods Resort Casino. It was a great time and I’m glad me and my teammates and friends from Boston sports teams and local celebrities were able to come out and have a great time while raising money for my foundation.

The event raised more than $300,000 for The Truth Fund, which I launched in May of 2002 to provide educational and life-enriching opportunities for underprivileged youth. The funds will support my Truth on Health Campaign, which empowers and encourages young people to lead healthier lifestyles.

We had a great lineup of celebrities who bowled for the cause included KG, Perk, Glen Davis, Avery Bradley and Marquis Daniels; Tyronn Lue and Dana Barros came out and so did Kevin Youkilis.

I can’t forget Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos who’s always been a big supporter of the team. And my guy Chef Ming Tsai. Ayla Brown; Akrobatik; Greg Dickerson; JAM’N 94.5’s Ramiro.

And Billy Costa from KISS? He killed it as our emcee and auctioneer. Thanks Billy.

This year’s Truth Strikes Again and Truth on Health partners include USI Insurance, Foxwoods Resort Casino, High Rollers Luxury Lanes and Lounge, After FX Customs, Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation, CSI Capital Management, Judith Ripka, The Boston Globe and Boston.com, Comcast, KISS 108, JAMN 94.5, Alliance for a Healthier Generation, Dexter, Boston Beer, Spalding, Brand Affinity Technologies (BAT), Nike, JetBlue, CAVU, Tufts Medical Center, and Switch2Health.
