Calhoun Charity Game Aug. 7

The Mohegan Sun/Jim Calhoun Charity All-Star Game will be held on Saturday, Aug. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Mohegan Sun Arena. Most of the great players who have played for Coach Calhoun during the past twenty years are expected to participate: Ray Allen, Emeka Okafor, Ben Gordon, Rip Hamilton, Caron Butler, Kevin Ollie, Donyell Marshall, Khalid El-Amin, Doron Sheffer, Ricky Moore and Rudy Gay, among others. Two teams of Coach Calhoun’s former players will play in a collegiate-style game.

“I am excited to be able to once again bring so many of my former players back together for what should be a special reunion for them and for the fans of Connecticut. I am also pleased that proceeds from the game will go to fight America’s number #1 killer – heart disease,” said Coach Jim Calhoun.

Since 1999, the Mohegan Sun / Jim Calhoun Celebrity Classic has raised more than $3 million for cardiology research at the UConn Health Center’s Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center.

The charity game’s title sponsor is Mohegan Sun and it is presented by Price Chopper in association with Comcast.

Tickets are $22 to $29 and go on sale as of 10AM on Tuesday, June 22nd through Ticketmaster and at the Mohegan Sun Arena Box Office. To purchase game tickets, call Ticketmaster at 800.345.7000; go to, or visit the Mohegan Sun Box Office.
