Detroit Pistons Launch Come Together Transportation Program
Michigan Veterans' Foundation to Attend Nov. 8 Home Game Against OKC ThunderAUBURN HILLS, Mich. – The Detroit Pistons will launch the Come Together Transportation Program, providing transportation for community organizations to some of the biggest Pistons home games throughout the season, beginning tonight when the Pistons battle the Oklahoma City Thunder at 7:30 p.m. at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
The Michigan Veterans’ Foundation – the first group of Come Together Transportation Program riders – is helping the Pistons celebrate the NBA Cares Hoops for Troops initiative in honor of Veteran’s Day tonight. They will arrive at the game in style on the Pistons’ 56-passenger branded bus and receive food and beverage vouchers with their tickets.
“Tonight we are proud to host the Michigan Veterans’ Foundation and recognize them for their service to our country,” said Dennis Mannion, Palace Sports & Entertainment CEO/President. “The Come Together Transportation Program is another opportunity for the Pistons to salute various organizations for the positive impact they’re making in their communities.”
NBA Cares Hoops for Troops is a year-round initiative led by the NBA, its teams and players in collaboration with the Department of Defense, USO and other military and veteran serving organizations to honor active and retired service men and women and their families. In honor of Veterans Day, from Nov. 7-11, NBA players will wear special Adidas-brand shooting shirts, headbands, wristbands and socks.
