A note from Yao Ming

Hey everyone!

I’m very honored to be taking a trip to Springfield, Massachusetts next month for my induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. But it’ll be more fun if I have some fans there, so I want one of you to come with me! If you win, here's what you'll get...

Thursday: two VIP tickets to the Hall Of Fame Press Conference, the Welcome Reception, the HOF Family Reunion and Awards Dinner at the Hall Of Fame in Springfield, and that's the day we'll meet up for a picture together!

Friday: two tickets to the Pre-Enshrinement Gala and the Enshrinement Ceremony at the Symphony Hall in Springfield.

Saturday: VIP access to the Hall Of Fame Brunch with the Hall Of Famers, the Private Reception, and the Induction Celebration at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut!

And over 50 returning Hall of Fame members will be there for you to hang out with! The Induction will be at the beautiful Mohegan Sun Resort where you'll have unique access to our Hall of Fame “Family”! This is a priceless experience and all it takes to enter is a $10 donation to The Yao Ming Foundation and The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. That’ll get you 100 entries, but the more you enter, the more chances to win!

Shaquille O’Neal and Allen Iverson will be there. Shaq & A.I. & me & YOU!

And since retiring from basketball, I've been busy. You may have heard that I started a winery. So along with extra entries, higher donations will receive special thank you gifts, including signed bottles of our limited edition Napa Crest Hall of Fame Edition Red Wine!

Got all that?

I can’t wait to meet one of you in Springfield!

About The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and The Yao Ming Foundation

The Yao Ming Foundation

The Yao Ming Foundation was established in June of 2008 by international NBA Star Yao Ming in response to the devastating 8.0 earthquake in Sichuan Province, China on May 12, 2008.  An 8.0 earthquake is the equivalent to energy released from 790 nuclear bombs. More than 8,000 schoolrooms and 185 schools were destroyed during the earthquake.

The Yao Ming Foundation has so far committed to rebuilding five schools in the earthquake region. The new earthquake resistant schools will provide top level education for more than 1000 students, many of whom will also board at the schools. 

The Yao Ming Foundation also supports additional educational opportunities in the US and China. 


The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall Of Fame

Today, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is home to more than three hundred inductees and more than 40,000 square feet of basketball history. Located on the picturesque banks of the Connecticut River, the new museum is a fitting shrine to the game Dr. Naismith invented more than a century ago.

The landmark structure is one of the world’s most distinctive monuments punctuating the Springfield skyline and stirring the spirits of basketball fans everywhere. Hundreds of interactive exhibits share the spotlight with skills challenges, live clinics, and shooting contests. And of course there is enough basketball history to impress the world’s most avid sports fans!
