FRISCO, TX (Mar. 3, 2017) – The Texas Legends have announced a partnership with KIA that will once again highlight the works of Goodwill Dallas as the Legends host the Salt Lake City Stars tonight.
Goodwill Dallas originated in 1923, born out of a clothing drive fundraiser at a local church. The project exceeded expectations and was running with 50 employees by the following year. The organization has been giving back to the Dallas area for over 90 years, working to empower local residents through education and employment.
For the second year, the Legends will recognize the efforts of Goodwill Dallas employees and volunteers with the help of KIA. The Legends will wear custom Goodwill Dallas jerseys co-branded with the KIA and Legends logos. The night will serve to honor KIA’s commitment to the community as well as the countless hours put into the Goodwill Industries of Dallas by its faithful volunteers, donors, and staff.
“We are excited to celebrate an organization that is both local and international, giving back to our residents and people in need around the world,” said Dallas Mavericks President/General Manager and Legends Owner Donnie Nelson. “This night gives our fans an opportunity to reflect on all they have to be grateful for and give to those who are not as fortunate. We look forward to celebrating over 90 years of hard work with Goodwill and a special partnership with KIA.”
The Legends will host the Utah Jazz affiliate, the Salt Lake City Stars, tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Dr Pepper Arena. The matchup will be the fourth and final of the two teams this season with the Legends leading the series 2-1.
