Raymond Townsend

Retired Basketball Player and Youth Sports Filipino Hoops and Heritage Tour

Raymond Townsend – Historic Filipino-American Basketball Player

I am a former UCLA All-American and the First and only Filipino-American to play in the National Basketball Association (NBA). As a NBA First round draft pick and a UCLA player for the legendary Coach John Wooden, I have been fortunate to be a part of this great game. RT Basketball has serviced over 20,000 children in its’ short 17 year history being the first year round “educational development” basketball league in San Jose, California and throughout the Bay Area. We have been the catalyst to over 75 current basketball leagues in San Jose serving the community. RT Basketball also founded and started year- round Basketball Leagues in over 15 other cities and communities and is currently consulting for these city leagues. Many of our RT players go on to participate at the Collegiate and University level with over 100 players competing at the Professional level here in the United States (NBA) and overseas in South America and Europe. I am truly dedicated to the development of young people’s self-esteem and confidence through our Year-round RT BASKETBALL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS.

Vocational: District 5170 Yellow Pages

By Mike Kane


About seven years ago District 5170 started providing Yellow Pages on our Rotary District website. The objective was to give our Rotarians the capability of listing their businesses so fellow District Rotary members would have a place to look up services they may need. What a great way to communicate our vocation!

We encourage you to list your company and services. You may even consider adding this information to your club website or newsletter.

Remember, the Yellow Page listing is completely free! 

You simply go to and at the top of the home page you will see the Yellow Page link. Just click on Yellow Pages… it’s pretty self-explanatory and very easy to add a listing. Plus it’s FREE.


If you have any questions, please contact Mike Kane (408-395-6533) or Gary Citti at or call 408-371-9600 ext 2.
