The Grizzlies’ looming ownership drama

Posted on: November 9, 2017

Source: Memphis Flyer The Grizzlies' buy/sell agreement is still behind the scenes, but you can expect it to take center stage. On October 25, 2017, the Memphis Grizzlies passed a curious milestone in the history of the franchise: They entered the window of time in which Griz minority owners Steve Kaplan and Daniel Straus could trigger a "buy/sell" clause in their partnership agreement with Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera.

Free the Doctors: To Fix ACA, Trump Must Restore Physician Authority

Posted on: September 14, 2017

Source: Observer Author: Daniel E. Straus As talk swirls about repealing and replacing Obamacare, President Trump must train his focus on the fundamental error of the ACA, which is the shift in patient care decision-making away from frontline physicians and toward hospitals and insurance companies. Health insurance for everyone is important; however if it comes at the expense of providing quality healthcare to everyone, it is at best a pyrrhic victory. Hospitals are the most expensive and many times inefficient venue for the delivery of care and have contributed to rising costs while also failing to improve the quality of patient care.  

Could the Grizzlies Be the Next NBA Team to Be Sold?

Posted on: September 8, 2017

  Texas billionaire Tilman Fertitta called his pending ownership of the Houston Rockets a “dream come true” when the sale was announced Tuesday. He probably wasn’t the only one who felt that way. Any tech mogul, oil tycoon, or Large Son beneficiary who holds a stake in an NBA team was likely pleased to see the record $2.2 billion price tag Fertitta paid for the Rockets. Except, maybe, Memphis Grizzlies owner Robert Pera. In October, Grizzlies minority owners Steve Kaplan and Daniel Straus are eligible to purchase control from majority owner Robert Pera, as outlined in an ESPN report two springs ago. Why October? Kaplan and Straus will have the option thanks to a “buy/sell” clause that the stakeholders agreed to when they purchased the franchise in October 2012.

Daniel Straus, CareOne’s CEO, and Elizabeth Straus, its executive vice president, were honored as Humanitarians of the Year. The entire CareOne organization was recognized as Corporation of the Year, in recognition of CareOne’s “200 Wishes” fundraiser, which took place at the Prudential Center in February and drew more than 1,000 attendees. That resulted in a $1.3 million commitment from CareOne, representing the single largest corporate gift and the largest one-day fundraiser in the 34-year history of Make-A-Wish New Jersey.

Source: OMJ.com Author: Kelly Dillon The Prudential Center was transformed into every child’s dream come true Sunday afternoon — a whimsical candy land fairytale. CareOne hosted their 200 Wishes Fundraiser at the Newark arena on February 26th, which raised $1.3 million to support Make-A-Wish New Jersey. Spearheaded by CareOne CEO Daniel Straus and Executive Vice President Elizabeth Straus, the family-oriented event, which attracted more than 1,000 attendees, featured ice skating on the New Jersey Devils’ ice rink, carnival games and prizes, and Build-A-Bear Workshops. The premier family-owned healthcare company, which is New Jersey’s largest privately-owned post-acute and long-term care provider, selects a charitable organization to support each year. Their past initiatives have raised more than $5 million in funds for organizations including Superstorm Sandy relief efforts and The Valerie Fund Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.  

CareOne Hosts Sets One Day Fundraising Record for Make-A-Wish New Jersey in Newark

Source: TapInto.net Author: Adam Samuel NEWARK, NJ – For the Courtright family, the 200 Wishes carnival on Sunday, February 26 at the Prudential Center in Newark was about spreading the message of Make-A-Wish New Jersey and all it is able to accomplish for so many families across the state. The Caldwell family certainly knows the value. Two of their four children – Matthew and Mitchell – have cystic fibrosis. For Matthew, age 12, that meant a wish was granted to surf in Hawaii. For little Mitchell, age 7, it meant he finally got to see his true hero, Pluto, during a trip to Disney World. “It is really hard to put in words what Make-A-Wish New Jersey has meant for our family,” said Gregory Courtright, who attended the Sunday event with Mitchell, as well as his two daughters, Makenzie, 15, and Miranda, 9. The Courtright family showed its appreciation recently, donating the family’s 1968 convertible Corvette to raise money for the charity. “If that doesn’t show how appreciative we are, nothing will,” Courtright said. “I learned how to drive stick on that car.” Another way the Courtrights showed their support was to tell their story to the gaggle of media who attended Sunday’s event, generously presented by CareOne, a family-owned healthcare company. It was a record-setting day, with $1.3 million generated for Make-A-Wish New Jersey – enough to generate 200 wishes.
