A man in Los Angeles is using is fortune for the better this week.
Clippers owner Steve Ballmer and his wife Connie have stepped up to the plate to help in the fight against the coronavirus.
The couple has donated more than $25 million to the cause, earmarking $10 million of that money for the University of Washington's Emergency Response Fund. The remaining $15 million will be distributed to various relief efforts in Los Angeles, Seattle and Eastern Michigan, a rep for the Ballmer group revealed on Friday.
The charitable act marks Ballmer's third contribution to help fight the coronavirus. He recently forked over $3 million to relief efforts in Seattle, and earlier this week he gave California $1 million.
This donation is on top of what Ballmer has already committed to in the NBA's COVID-19 relief funds. The league is suspended indefinitely and arena employees are unable to work. This money will be used to help this employees get paid.
Ballmer has officially become one of the most generous basketball team owners.
However, he's still focused on his team. Earlier this week he officially bought the Forum in Inglewood for $400 million.
Thank you to the Ballmer's for your efforts! It does not go unnoticed.
