Washington D.C. - Rita Williams of the Washington Mystics will participate in Global Youth Service Day on Friday, April 25th from 4:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. Williams will be on hand for the opening ceremony. This event allows the youth of the city to identify and serve the needs of their communities through service projects. These projects include neighborhood cleanups, starting recycling programs and working at soup kitchens. Their goals are to educate the policymakers, media and public about youth contributions and being leaders in their communities. Last year, there were 20,000 youth volunteers that participated in over 200 projects throughout the District.

The Washington Mystics will tip off the 2008 season on Saturday, May 17th, on the road against the Indiana Fever. Washington will host the club’s home opener on Sunday, May 25th, against the four-time WNBA Champion Houston Comets at 4:00 p.m. Individual tickets are currently on sale on www.ticketmaster.com.
