NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Infiniti donated more than $1 million as part of the brand’s ongoing corporate partnership with NCAA® Division I men’s basketball and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). Randy Parker, vice president of Infiniti Americas, presented the checks to the winners at Infiniti Americas headquarters in Tennessee.
Head coach Matt Painter and the Purdue Boilermakers fans won the annual Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge, the first time the head coach and school have won. Painter’s chosen charity, the Smith BReaK Thru Fund, received a check for $100,000. Infiniti donated another $267,500 to various philanthropic organizations that were individually selected by the other NABC coaches in the Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge.
“We’re honored to continue our support of the Coaches’ Charity Challenge, the NABC and the American Cancer Society through Coaches vs. Cancer,” said Parker. “Coach Painter and the Purdue Boilermakers did a wonderful job rallying to win the Challenge in support of the Smith BReaK Thru Fund. We’re proud to make a donation to such a deserving organization.”
