Basketball great Lenny Wilkens knows how to nurture success. That's why the Odessa Brown Children's Clinic in Seattle has come to be central in his giving. The Foundation gave the clinic $130,000 last year, and over the past 19 years the Wilkens family has raised or donated $2.5 million to the clinic through the foundation.
