Starship Hospital will receive an unexpected extra $5,000 donation ahead of Thursday's celebrity charity basketball match thanks to an impressive half-court shot by UFC fighter Kai Kara-France at practice.
At the end of a recent training session for the All Star Celeb Slam, Breakers owner Matt Walsh issued a challenge to all the celebrities that he'd donate $5,000 if they sunk a shot from halfway on their first attempt.
Team Abercrombie teammates Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Shane Young both threw up attempts but were unsuccessful before Kara-France came through with the goods.
Kara-France lapped up the moment afterwards with Team Delany recruit, entrepreneur Nick Mowbray.
"It doesn't even matter if I win or lose," Kara-France said.
"It's all about the half-court shot."
Thursday's game at Spark Arena tips off at 7:30pm with limited tickets still available.
