Former WNBA player Rebecca Lobo spoke at the Ann’s Place Breakfast on May 17 in The Amber Room in Danbury, Connecticut. Tickets to attend costed $25 per person, or $500 for an entire table, and the speech that she gave was a great way to start the day over a nice warm meal. Lobo spoke about all of her athletic accomplishments including participating at the Olympic games, playing basketball in the WNBA and her career as a sports analyst. She was able to give the audience some insight into what it takes to be a professional athlete in this day and age, as well as discuss her scholarship program that she founded alongside her mother.
The Hartford, Connecticut native got the attention of many colleges when she displayed her fantastic basketball schools during her high school years. She was recruited by several schools but ended up attending the University of Connecticut right in her home state so that she could be closer to home. After winning a gold medal in the 1996 Olympics, Lobo came home and turned pro and signed on with the New York Liberty where she played for six years until 2003. Shortly after that, Lobo did some brief playing time with the Houston Comets and the Connecticut Sun before retiring from the courts. Afterwards she took on the job as a sports analyst for ESPN and was even inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010.
Lobo spoke at Ann’s Place in Danbury, Connecticut earlier this month to be the keynoter for the breakfast banquet that happened on May 17. There were good conversations had along with great food, and everyone who got to attend were glad they got to be there.
