Donate a Box of Cereal, Meet Jazz Player Trevor Booker

SALT LAKE CITY (September 10, 2014) – New Utah Jazz forward Trevor Booker will host “Booker’s Breakfast Assist,” a charitable meet-and-greet fan opportunity benefitting the Crossroads Urban Center on Saturday, Sept. 13 from 10 a.m. – noon at Smith’s Marketplace in West Jordan.

The event, which combines Booker’s love of cereal with his passion for giving back, offers fans who donate a box of cereal the chance to get autographs and photos with the four-year veteran. Smith’s Marketplace will also contribute a gallon of milk for every box of cereal collected.

Booker, who signed with the Jazz as a free agent in July, played the past four seasons for the Washington Wizards, averaging 6.4 points and 5.1 rebounds in 235 career games. A native of South Carolina and a Clemson University alumnus, he is also known for his favorite food choice.

“I always ate cereal growing up, no matter the time of day,” said Booker. “My brothers did the same thing. We just loved cereal. I probably eat as much as 20 bowls a week.”

Booker expresses an appreciation for all types of cereal, listing some of his favorites as Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, Frosted Mini-Wheats, and Corn Flakes. His latest affinity has been Raisin Bran with bananas. With the help of Jazz fans and Smith’s Marketplace, he hopes to re-stock the pantry with cereal on Saturday for the Crossroads Urban Center, a nonprofit, grassroots organization that provides assistance to low income and disabled Utah residents.
