Blazersedge Night: Time to Gear Up!

As we announced a couple months ago, Blazersedge Night at the Rose Garden will take place on April 1st, 2011.  That's the night we're sending almost 500 kids who otherwise wouldn't be able to attend a game live to see the Blazers take on the Oklahoma City Thunder.  We've done this several years running and each time we're flooded with stories from teachers, students, and other professionals who work with kids...stories describing what a difference THIS NIGHT makes in the relationships between those professionals and their students and the in the worlds of the kids themselves.

This doesn't happen without you, though.  Tickets are $25 each for the game.  We need your help in purchasing them so the kids can go.  Demand has been higher this year than ever and we don't want to turn anybody down.  If you can manage a ticket or two or ten, please help.  If you and four buddies can get together and spring for a couple,or if your office can take up a collection, please consider that as well.  Every ticket sold sends a kid and/or their chaperon to the game.

You can donate in a couple different ways.  The information is right here.  Please help out if you can.  We have a lot of tickets to purchase in just a couple months if those kids are going to go!

Blazersedge Night:  April 1st, 2011 versus the Oklahoma City Thunder

Ticket Cost:  $25 per ticket plus a $5 service charge per order whether you buy 1 ticket or 100 with that order.

Ways to Purchase:

  1. Call Lisa Swan at the Portland Trail Blazers office at 503-963-3966.  Tell her you're purchasing for Blazersedge night  FOR THE KIDS or FOR CHARITY.  You can also purchase tickets for yourself to attend in the B.E. section that night, which is why you need to make your intentions clear.  If you tell them it's for the kids they set the tickets aside instead of mailing them to you.  If you want to attend yourself, make that clear as well.  You can purchase in all the usual ways:  credit card, check, what have you.
  2. You can also donate money via PayPal to the Blazersedge Paypal Account:  We accumulate your donations and pay for the tickets in one big chunk at the end.  This allows you to donate non-standard amounts (like $20 or $80) and also avoids that $5 order fee, as we make one bulk purchase.
  3. If you prefer just to send a check, contact me at the e-mail address below and we can set that up.

Thanks for your support for this great event!  Questions?  Contact me via e-mail.
