She Sure Works Hard For The Money

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – The three-time champion Detroit Shock will host “Tip-A-Shock” at Buffalo Wild Wings in Lake Orion and a fundraising night at The Palace to raise money for the American Diabetes Association (ADA).

During “Tip-A-Shock” the entire team and coaching staff will wait tables and bartend to collect tips to be donated directly to the ADA on Wednesday, July 29 at 6 p.m. at Buffalo Wild Wings. The event is open to the public and ends at approximately 8:30 p.m. Shock fans will have the chance to get autographs and photos, all for a tip of course. The team will also host a raffle where fans can win unique autographed Shock memorabilia. Last year, the event raised over $4,500 for the ADA.

The Detroit Shock is also hosting an ADA night at The Palace on Sunday, August 23 where $10 from every ticket will be donated to the organization. For anyone interested in supporting ADA night at The Palace, contact Rachel Myers at 248.377.0126 or

“Diabetes is a disease that is close to me and my teammates, so we are excited to support the ADA by hosting these events,” says Shock Captain, Cheryl Ford. “Tip-A-Shock is a really fun event for us and our fans. It allows our fans to get to know us off the court while raising money for a great cause.”

Buffalo Wild Wings is located at 770 N Lapeer Road, Lake Orion, MI 48362. Customers will be sat on a first come first serve basis.
