LEAVE IT TO Bill Cosby to turn a sad situation into a laughing matter.
Cosby will hold a benefit concert for Temple's men's gymnastics program at the Independence Visitor Center at 6th and Market streets, on Thursday, Aug. 15 at 7:30 p.m.
In December, Temple head men's gymnastics coach Fred Turoff found out his sport was being demoted from varsity to club status.
That means Turoff and his gymnasts have to raise money for the program to continue.
Enter the Cos, a Philly native, who attended Temple and still bleeds Cherry & White.
"I was able to find a way to contact Cosby," Turoff said yesterday. "I got to talk to him and he said, 'I'll tell you what, how about if I do a benefit concert with David Brenner?' "
