In honor of ‘Go Green Night”, Mystics players will wear shirts made of organic fabric which will be available for purchase at the Team Store, located near the F street entrance.

Soles4Souls, a Nashville-based charity, will be located on the Verizon Center concourse collecting gently worn shoes to be distributed around the world.
