Wizards To Go Bald
Fans Encouraged to Help Wizards Fight Childhood Cancer
The Dakota Wizards are raising money for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to help find a cure for childhood cancer and fans will have an opportunity to join in on the effort Wednesday, March 14th when the Wizards host the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
Fans will have the opportunity to donate throughout the night by purchasing raffle tickets for a chance to win a signed Jerry West basketball and by participating in the tire toss at halftime for the chance to win a signed Dakota Wizards jersey. After the game, Justin Johnson, Tommy Smith, Shy Ely, Mike Anderson, Mo Baker and even Wizards Public Relations Director Scott Woodmansee will shave their heads based on how much is donated. A few lucky fans will have the opportunity to polish Head Coach Nate Bjorkgren’s head.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives. Childhood cancer kills more children than any other disease – more than AIDS, Asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and congenital anomalies, combined. Since 2000, more than 120 million dollars has been raised for childhood cancer research.
Fans can also donate to St. Baldrick’s online through Team Dakota Wizards.
Season tickets and 5-ticket flex packs for the 2011-12 season are on sale. Single game tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster or the Civic Center Box Office. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. For more information contact the Dakota Wizards at (701) 258-2255.
