Tall Latinos in the club

International Trail Blazers Welcomed by Hispanic Chamber

Spanish Trail Blazers Sergio Rodriguez and Rudy Fernandez spent the evening of March 24th mingling with members of the Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber of Portland at a reception hosted in the Courtside Club Lounge of the Rose Garden Arena. Executive Director of the Chamber, Gale Castillo, introduced Rodriguez and Fernandez to the Latino community at a celebration to formally welcome both basketball players to the city of Portland.

Meanwhile, children of Chamber members and youth from Big Brothers Big Sisters and Latino Educational and Recreational Network (L.E.a.R.N) were invited out to the court for a basketball clinic and a tour of the Rose Garden arena, complete with an exclusive “backstage” look at the Trail Blazers locker room. Following the reception, Chamber members rejoined the children on the Rose Garden Arena Court for a rare opportunity to shoot around with the NBA stars.
