Offer Open to Anyone Working with Under-Served Young Folks in the Portland Area

Would you like to take your students to see the Trail Blazers play? We got a record number of donations and might be able to help.

Update: We were able to benefit so many people with those extra tickets. Unfortunately our supply is now accounted for. Thanks to everyone who wrote in with requests. We will be taking more requests in the fall for the 2019 version of Blazer’s Edge Night, so watch this space then!

Do you work with kids in need or know someone who does? Each year we send over 2000 young folks and their chaperones to see the Trail Blazers play through our Blazer’s Edge Night project. Because of this site’s readers, this year we got a record number of tickets donated. Because of their generosity, we have a couple hundred tickets still available.

If you can take a group of students to see the Blazers play the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday, February 27th, email me at and we’ll see if we can arrange it. The offer is open to anyone who works with children or youth who otherwise couldn’t see the game because of their economic or social circumstances. Don’t be shy about asking.
