Connecticut Sun To Hold Food Drive

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (May 20, 2013) The Connecticut Sun will host a food drive at its home opener on May 25th as they take on the New York Liberty at Mohegan Sun Arena at 7 p.m.

The Sun are asking fans to bring non-perishable food items to the game, which will then be donated to the New London Community Meal Center. Bins for food collection will be available on the concourse just inside both entrances of Mohegan Sun Arena. The entire team will be volunteering at the Community Meal Center the following week as part of the WNBAs Cares Week.

The New London Community Meal Center was established in 1985. It was created to respond to the needs of New London's most vulnerable residents by providing nutritious meals in a kind, hospitable and clean environment. The organization currently provides lunch five days a week and dinner six days a week, including Saturday dinner served by a downtown New London church.

The Connecticut Sun will open its 11th season at Mohegan Sun Arena on May 25th against the New York Liberty at 7 p.m. Season tickets and mini plans are on sale now, and can be reserved by calling a Sun Ticket Representative at 1.877.SUN.TIXX (786-8499) or via e-mail at tickets@connecticutsun.com.
