Two-time Olympic gold medalist Ruthie Bolton was the keynote speaker for the Black and White Luncheon fundraiser that took place on September 28th at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Santa Clara. The event was sponsored by a combination of the NFL Alumni, Multi-Ethnic Sports Hall of Fame, and several other nonprofit agencies to honor 12 women in the Bay Area who do good acts in the area to help out their local community. Bolton gave a great talk about the obstacles in her life and how she used them to benefit herself and become the star basketball player that she is known to be.
The two-time Olympic gold medalist played for Auburn University between 1985 and 1989 in the Guard position and quickly formed a great reputation. She entered the 1997 WNBA Draft and was picked up by the Sacramento Monarchs with whom she played with until 2004. In addition to that, in 1991 Bolton was called to represent her country as a part of Team USA at the World University Games in England that year. The Mississippi native has won several medals including one at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, 2000 Sydney Olympics, World University Games and the FIBA World Championship for Women tournament. These days even though she has retired from playing basketball, she still works for the Monarchs and does administrative duties for the team.
Bolton was a great speaker at the Black and White Luncheon that happened just a couple of months ago and she was able to help them raise some funds for an awesome cause.
