Pella native and current NBA player Kyle Korver will be making a special appearance at Sports Page Sporting Goods in Pella tonight.

Korver will be helping a Pella youth, Kobe Diers, raise money for an orphanage in Sierra Leone. The idea stemmed from Diers efforts to buy basketball hoops for the orphanage after his mother returned home from a mission trip to the orphanage. Diers solicited small donations for every three pointer he made in the month of April, with a goal of raising $1000. He surpassed that raising over $1800 and was able to buy two hoops. When Korver got word of the youth’s efforts he was very touched and decided to help using the Kyle Korver Foundation.

The Sports Page will be selling Korver’s SEER clothing line t-shirts all day today with all proceeds going toward the orphanage cause and Kyle Korver will be in the store from 7-8pm tonight. Anyone who buys a shirt will also be entered into a raffle to win Kyle Korver signed merchandise.
