Syracuse University men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim says he will continue to hold a fundraising event at the Turning Stone Casino, although none has been named. The American Cancer Society has decided to cut ties with the Oneida Indian Nation on the heels of the news that the Oneida Nation have bought a cigarette plant in order to produce its own cigarettes.
Boeheim says the Turning Stone Resort is the best place to hold a gala and golf tournament. He says he thinks it's the best venue and that the most money can be raised there. He says instead of giving that money to the American Cancer Society it will go towards other charities.
When asked about his relationship with the Turning Stone Resort, Boeheim says he is on good terms with the people there but no financial relationship of any kind. He also believes the resort gives him the best deal. He says if he held it in Syracuse, it would cost about 30% more to hold the event.
