WBA LENDING SUPPORT TO ADVOCACY GROUPS
The WNBA is teaming up with several organizations that support women and girls. The league, which begins its 22nd season Friday, will donate $5 for each ticket purchased to select games during the season to one of six groups as part of the Take a Seat, Take a Stand campaign. All 12 teams will participate, designating up to six contests to this initiative. The six organizations are Bright Pink, GLSEN, It’s On Us, MENTOR, Planned Parenthood and The United State of Women. In addition to these organizations, fans will have the choice to support local groups in all 12 teams’ communities.
