Financial Pathways of the Piedmont will welcome “Big Game” James Worthy, one of basketball’s most decorated champions, at two fundraisers: a VIP reception Sept. 13 at 5:30 p.m. at Divine Llama Vineyards in East Bend and a luncheon Sept. 14 at 11:30 a.m. at the Benton Convention Center in downtown Winston-Salem.

An NCAA champion, three-time NBA champion and an MVP with the Los Angeles Lakers, he has been a champion at every level of his basketball career.

He serves as an analyst for Time Warner Cable SportsNet and was hired by the Lakers in 2015 to assist the team’s coaching staff in a player development role.

As a member of the 1982 North Carolina Tar Heels, he led the team to an NCAA championship and was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player.

Taken first in the 1982 NBA draft by the Los Angeles Lakers, Worthy went on to win three NBA championships and was named the MVP of the 1988 NBA Finals. Voted an All Star seven times, Worthy has been named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History.

A native of Gastonia, Worthy established the James Worthy Foundation, which provides scholarships to students to further their educations and supports organizations advocating for “at-risk” children.

Tickets to the VIP event are $100 and luncheon tickets are $75.  Both can be obtained through Brown Paper Tickets.
