Select game-worn jerseys will be available for purchase from the Legends’ online store (TexLegendsShop.com) with proceeds benefiting Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer.
“This is a night we look forward to every year,” commented Diane Busbee, Vice President of Development of Wipe Out Kids Cancer. “We are so grateful to ZTE for their generosity in making this night possible and to the Legends for hosting our families and providing an atmosphere where our kids can be kids.”
