BLOOMINGTON — Illinois Wesleyan University graduate and former NBA player Jack Sikma will be the keynote speaker for the Bloomington-Normal YMCA’s annual Legacy Dinner.
The dinner is set for 7 p.m. June 20 at the Bloomington Country Club with a 6 p.m. cocktail hour. The event benefits YMCA’s Strong Kids Program.
Sikma will speak on “being the best person you can be” and how his days playing basketball are relevant today and in the future. He is a consultant/coach with the Toronto Raptors and will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in September.
The Legacy Award will honor Sister Judith Ann Duvall, OSF, and the Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis for their ministry of health in McLean County. The award is the highest honor given to a group or individual who embodies the YMCA’s adopted Bible verse, John 17:21, “that they may all be one, as we are one.”
The award honors those who give of the time, talent, and treasure to improve the lives of others in spirit, mind and body.
