Verona (WSYR-TV) - $135,000 was raised for the Boeheim Foundation during a live auction at its 15th Annual Basket Ball on Saturday.

The foundation helps fight cancer and gives back to the children of Central New York.

One of the items auctioned off was the jacket and tie Boeheim wore when he was ejected on the road against Duke on February 22.

The winning bid for the outfit and a printed version of stats from the game was $14,000.

After the jacket was auctioned off, a “tear away” blazer was presented to Boeheim.
