PORTLAND, Ore. - The Portland Trail Blazers, in conjunction with the scheduled jersey retirement ceremonies for Terry Porter and Bobby Gross this December, will host a public celebration and VIP reception on December 17 at the Rose Garden.
Tickets are only $10 for the 7:30 p.m. celebration, which will honor, roast and recognize the two honored guests among a ‘who's who' of Trail Blazers players, coaches and personalities from throughout the organization's 39-year history in Portland.
"Our goal is to host a fun, fan-friendly evening that will bring people together from different eras in our history, provide some laughs and rekindle some great Trail Blazers memories," Trail Blazers President Larry Miller said.
A VIP reception for Trail Blazers luminaries, on the Lexus Club Level at 6:00 p.m., will precede the public celebration. Hard-core BlazerManiacs who want to rub elbows with Blazers greats of past and present can purchase tickets to the private reception for $100. The cost includes light snacks, drinks and VIP seating for the celebration.
Any net proceeds from the celebration will benefit the Kevin Duckworth Scholarship Fund.
