BOSTON (WHDH) - San Francisco Sheriff Paul Miyamoto and Middlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian donated $500 each to their local Boys and Girls Clubs as part of a wager on the 2022 NBA Finals.
The Golden State Warriors and the Celtics faced off in the NBA Finals, leading Koutoujian and Miyamoto, long-time colleagues and friends, to agree to a wager based on the tournament. Their bet said that the losing sheriff would have to donate $500 to the Boys and Girls Club and wear the apparel of the winning team in a photo.
A month after the Warriors beat out the Celtics in Game 5 on June 16, the San Francisco Sheriffs’ Office posted a video of the wager’s outcome. The video shows Koutoujian wearing Warriors gear and handing a check to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lowell.
Miyamoto also donated $500 to the Boys and Girls Club of San Francisco, in a show of good sportsmanship.
