Clippers Donating $47,200 to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES – The Clippers couldn’t have picked a better time to set a franchise record for 3-pointers in a season.
As part of the 3 Point Play program, the Clippers are donating $47,200 to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (@ChildrensLA) after pledging to send $50 for every 3-point shot made this year to help CHLA treat kids better.
The Clippers hit 944 3-pointers this year, making 827 in the regular season and adding 117 more in the playoffs, each one helping CHLA further. Those 944 3-pointers were 132 more than they had as a team last year, adding up to a difference of $6,600.
J.J. Redick led the Clippers with a career-high 200 made 3-pointers during the regular season, and he followed that up by hitting a team-leading 35 3-pointers in the postseason. Redick’s sharpshooting from long range helped contribute $11,750 toward the CHLA donation.
Redick is also donating a separate $27,300 to Children’s Miracle Network, which CHLA is partnered with, to go toward hospital equipment. Redick donated $100 for each 3-pointer he made during the last two regular seasons with the Clippers.
