Scottie Pippen to act with Make-A-Wish beneficiary


Hall of fame inductee Scottie Pippen is keeping himself  nowadays. Recently he joined the Bulls organization as an adviser, played pick up basketball with President Barack Obama on election day and now, according to reports by CSN Chicago, Pippen is going into acting, for a good cause.

Pippen has teamed up with the Make-A-Wish foundation in Chicago, to perform partial roles with 7-year-old, Make-A-Wish beneficiary, La’Ren Kimble.

Kimble, who was diagnosed with Wilm’s tumour in 2007, loves being in the limelight and acting.

Pippen will join Kimble at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago, to perform the Charles Dicken classic’s A Christmas Carol on Dec. 14.

Make-A-Wish foundation helps children who battle life-threatening medical conditions. For six years now, the Make-A-Wish foundation in Illinois and Goodman Theatre have partnered to give back to children battling these life-threatening illnesses.

Tickets for the Dec 14. show start from $40 to $90 and can be purchased at www.goodmantheatre.org
