NETWORK OF ENTERTAINING ASIAN AMERICAN TALENT
Excel Telecommunications entrepreneur Paul Orberson has bid almost $100,000 to have dinner with Ashley Judd and Kentucky men’s basketball coach John Calipari.
Judd and the University of Kentucky basketball team, led by first-year head coach John Calipari, has helped raise over $1 million for Haiti earthquake relief. An auction for the cause included a dinner with the coach and actress Ashley Judd, going for $98,100.
Judd told the Herald-Leader that her personal chef would prepare the dinner which will be at Coach Calipari’s house probably sometime in the summer. She went on to say Kentucky basketball players may stop by and that they intended to do “whatever we can do to make it (the dinner) as worth this person’s money as possible.”
