Arlington, TX – The WNBA Dallas Wings will offer a specially-designed Pride t-shirt at its June 16 game as a fundraiser for Resource Center. Game attendees who make a minimum $20 donation to Resource Center will receive the limited-edition Pride t-shirt to show their team spirit and support for the LGBTQ community. Resource Center is a nonprofit organization with a mission to be a trusted leader that empowers the LGBTQ community and all people affected by HIV through improving health and wellness, strengthening families and communities, and providing transformative education and advocacy.
“The Dallas Wings team is proud of its diverse audience,” said Nicole Smith, Dallas Wings CMO. “June is a league-wide, month-long celebration of Pride, and a perfect time for us to partner with a worthy organization like Resource Center. Both the Wings and Resource Center are dedicated to helping youth and the community at large, and I am excited that we get to help them raise funds, highlight their services and potentially help those in need of their services.”
In addition to the campaign for Resource Center, the Wings will have a memorial for the anniversary of the Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting.
The Wings play the New York Liberty for the June 16 Pride Night game at College Park Center on the University of Texas at Arlington campus. Doors open at 6 p.m. and tip-off is at 7 p.m. Fans can receive 30 percent off their ticket for the game with the code PRIDE17.
