Weitsman tells the Post-Standard of Syracuse that on the way to the game at Cameron Indoor Stadium he was reading about a Syracuse recruit who learned to play the game at the Boys & Girls Club in Rochester, New York.
That's when the idea of the donation came to him. Weitsman's grandfather was a founding member of a Boys & Girls Club in New York. Also, the foundation of Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim and wife Juli supports branches of the organization.
Weitsman was among a group of Syracuse fans that sat behind the team bench for the victory. He says "it's amazing to be able to help them out."
