Salt Lake City (November 24, 2007) - Carlos and Cece Boozer, Andrei and Masha Kirilenko, and Deron and Amy Williams have purchased blocks of tickets to every Jazz home game at the EnergySolutions Arena. The tickets will be donated to non-profit youth organizations throughout the state of Utah. More than 5,000 kids and their chaperones will be able to attend a game as a part of the program this season.

"Giving these children an opportunity to watch the Jazz in action, is something that gives me and CeCe a tremendous amount of satisfaction, and really ends up blessing all of us too," said Boozer. "Amy and I are always looking for opportunities to help as many kids as possible," said Williams. "Masha and I like to give back to the community and especially to kids who cannot see games because family money is for medical bills when kids are sick," said Kirilenko.

The players have their sections personalized at the EnergySolutions Arena: Boozer's Buddies, Kirilenko's Kids and Deron's Double Team. The Boozer and Williams tickets are distributed through the Utah Jazz community relations department and the Kirilenko tickets are distributed through the Kirilenko Kids Foundation.

Groups who have benefited from the donated tickets in the past include the Ronald McDonald House, the Marshall White Center in Ogden, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Salt Lake, Special Olympics Utah, the Neighborhood House, Glendale Middle School, Best Buddies Utah and more.

This is the second season the program has been in place.
