An Evening with Bill Cosby: to SAVE the Temple Men's Gymnastics Program
Thursday, August 14, 2014 from 7:30 PM to 11:00 PM (EDT)
Spend an evening with beloved comedian Bill Cosby in an intimate venue (The Visitors Center at Independence Hall, in the Ballroom) and support the only collegiate men’s gymnastics team in our area. Last December 6th, Temple announced it was discontinuing varsity men’s gymnastics in its athletic program. The team will function as a university club starting July 1, 2014, and to sustain existence TUMG will now need to support itself through fundraising to ensure its future. This event will feature Temple alumnus Bill Cosby, who will help establish an endowment to provide training and competing opportunities to male gymnasts who attend Temple University.
The Temple Men’s Gymnastic program is the most winning men’s team in Temple history. It has played a large role in the winning and academic statistics for the university: 14 NCAA individual event champions; 26 conference team championships in the past 88 years of the teams existence and has also produced 3 OLYMPIC athletes and 2 OLYMPIC COACHES, including current Head Coach, Fred Turoff (1992).
