Co-owner of the Hornets donates $1 million to New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS -- Ray Wooldridge, co-owner of the New Orleans Hornets, has donated $1 million to be used for educational and recreational programs for youngsters in the city.
The money, from the Wooldridge Family Foundation, will be paid over a 10-year period, Mayor Ray Nagin said on Friday.
Wooldridge and George Shinn are moving the NBA team from Charlotte, N.C., to New Orleans.
"If you're going to live in a city, you have to be a part of what makes it better," Wooldridge said. "And there's no better way to truly make a difference than through our children."
