there's a storm a' brewing

no, no, no seattleites, i'm not talking about the weather (collective sigh of relief). i'm talking about the WNBA champions, the Seattle Storm. if you haven't been to a game this year, you are for sure missing some great basketball. you owe it to yourself to head downtown on august 11th, grab a bite to eat at my favorite bar Jabu's, and then head to the Key to watch the Storm take on Tulsa.

i bet you're thinking, "where do i get tickets?" well, i've got a solution for that! the Seattle Storm is partnering with the Melissa Erickson Foundation to create awareness for ALS and raise money for my ongoing medical needs. all you have to do is click on this link and it will take you to the Storm website. fill out your specific ticket needs, and find the section where it asks for the PROMO CODE. enter "MELISSA" to get the special event price and so a portion of the price will be donated to my foundation.

how awesome is that ?!?! welp, that's not all...on top of the ticket sales we will also be doing a 50/50 raffle. once you enter Key Arena, keep a lookout for my peeps in last year's blue pub crawl t-shirts and a roll of raffle tickets. buy a bunch of tickets and wait until the second half until hopefully your number is called. we will add up all the proceeds from the raffle and the winner takes home half and the MEF will get the rest!

this is such a special event for me because i love basketball and i adore watching a game with friends. after games my friends and i head back to Jabu's Pub for some karaoke and a few drinks. word on the street is Jabu's wants to get in on the donation train by donating the tips from karaoke to the MEF as well.

i am one lucky and loved girl! i hope you guys come to the game and come and find me so i can return the LOVE.
