With Veterans Day this Sunday, November 11th, the Cleveland Cavaliers will honor current and former members of the United States Military tonight, Wednesday, November 7th, when the team hosts the Oklahoma City Thunder at Quicken Loans Arena at 7:00 p.m. The Cavs are proud to pay tribute to those who have served our country by hosting the annual “Salute to Service Night,” presented by Ohio CAT. At halftime, current service members will escort Vietnam Veterans from the Greater Cleveland Chapter #15 to center court where they will be “pinned” as a lasting memento of the nation’s gratitude.
All fans in attendance will receive a double-sided Cavs poster giveaway, driven by Goodyear, featuring George Hill on one side and a tribute to our troops from Goodyear on the other.
Many other in-game elements on Wednesday will feature members of the military and will recognize past and present service members, including:
Halftime will also include the recognition of the Ohio CAT Scholarship Program winners. Two local veterans, currently pursuing education goals, have been selected to receive a $5,000 scholarship each from Ohio CAT as part of the company’s support of Salute to Service Night. The Cavs and Ohio CAT are also now accepting applications for scholarships for the 2019-20 school year. More information and the application are available at https://www.nba.com/cavaliers/ohio-cat-scholarship.
The Cavaliers Team Shop featured Item of the Game will be a Cavs camouflage hat. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Operation Hat Trick, an organization that helps provide direct services and support to wounded service members and veterans. Fans can purchase this hat in-store at The Q or online at Cavs.com/Shop all day Wednesday through the game.
