The Los Angeles Lakers announced today that they will make a donation to the Philippine Red Cross to assist in the relief efforts for victims of the devastating typhoon that ravaged the eastern and central parts of the country last week.

The Lakers will donate $150,000, as well as give all proceeds from the Lakers Youth Foundation In-Arena Auctions at all Lakers home games between November 12-24, to the Philippine Red Cross. The $150,000 check will be presented by Kobe Bryant at the next Lakers home game, November 15 against Memphis, and will be accepted by the all-star team from Jr. NBA Philippines.
