Oakland's Coach Kampe announces second 'Coaches Beat Cancer' fundraiser

(WXYZ) - Oakland basketball coach Greg Kampe annoucned he's holding a second 'Coaches Beat Cancer' fundraiser.

People bid on a weekend of eating and golfing with some of the biggest coaching names in basketball. Last year the star-studded group included the likes of Tom Izzo (somebody paid $19,000 to play a round of golf with the Michigan State coach), Kentucky's John Calipari, UNC's Roy Williams and more.

Kampe was able to raise just under $200,000 in less than 24 hours.

This year Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy, South Carolina's Frank Martin (of 2017 Final Four fame), and Tennessee's Rick Barnes are just a few of those getting involved. 

The winner will get dinner with the coaches at the MotorCity Casino Hotel on June 4, and a round of golf at Oakland Hills and another dinner the following day.

All proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society. 

The bidding starts here on May 8th at 5pm EST.
