The Portland Trail Blazers have announced that fan cutouts will be sold for the 2020-2021 basketball season. Fan cutouts have been seen in sports stadiums across the country since Covid-19 took away in person spectators. The Trail Blazers have teamed up with Fred Meyer to provide fan cutouts for the games played in the Moda Center for first half of the season. Cutouts are $99 each with 10% of net proceeds going to the Trail Blazers Foundation. Fans who purchase a cutout will have the opportunity to keep their cutout.
The Trail Blazers Foundation provides grants for various non-profits and schools in Oregon and Southwest Washington. They typically fundraise through 50-50 raffle events and license plate sales.
Brooke Olzendam, the Blazers own courtside reporter, not only has her own cutout, but her cutout has a Twitter account.
For more information, or to purchase a cutout, head to trailblazers.com/cutout before December 16th.
