LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles City/County Native American Indian Commission is seeking sponsorships to send low-income families to a NBA game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Detroit Pistons.
Saturday, March 22 is the date set for the game that is billed as the Clippers Native American Heritage Day. The game begins at 6:30 p.m. – PST.
There will be American Indian singing and dancing before and at half time. “The Los Angeles Clippers for the fifth year have agreed to help us provide a special night for our Indian families. While we focus on the low income youth and families we invite all Indians to join us in this night,” commented Ronald Andrade, director of the Los Angeles City/County Native American Indian Commission.
“This is not a fundraiser. All funds and tickets will be distributed to low income families with attention on children who are in the Indian Child Welfare Act program,” stated Andrade.
American Indian tribes, such as the San Manual Tribe and Santa Ynez Tribe are co-sponsoring the Clippers Native American Heritage Day, along with corporate support from Southern California Edison and Bank of America.
While this support has been secured, there is a need for additional sponsors.
Please contact Ron Andrade at 805-404-1490 or Lauren Kimball, Group Events Coordinator with the Los Angeles Clippers at 213-763-4617 for more information.
