DETAILS: Detlef Schrempf filmed in an episode of NBC’s Park and Recreation which will broadcast May 6, 2010 at 8:30 p.m. Detlef played for the Indiana Pacers from 1988-1993. The storyline is about how a former NBA star is coming back to fictional Pawnee, Indiana for a Parks and Recreation fundraiser.
Detlef attended the University of Washington, earning All PAC-10 honors. The Dallas Mavericks selected him with the eighth overall pick in the 1985 NBA draft. His 16 year career brought him back to the Northwest to play for the Seattle Supersonics and Portland Trailblazers.
The Detlef Schrempf Foundation has generated an enormous amount of interest and support for the local community through a variety of fundraising events including golf tournaments, gala auctions, celebrity dinners, family festivals, benefit concerts, basketball tournaments and basketball camps – not to mention numerous personal appearances and autograph sessions. To date, the Detlef Schrempf Foundation has raised nearly $10 million for charities and another $2 million in trade relationships.
