Baltimore Shuckers to Play in Anne Arundel United Charity Basketball Game
Free Event Will Raise Awareness of Unity Effort
Annapolis, MD (November 20, 2017) – The Baltimore Shuckers of the Central Basketball Association (CBA) announced they will play a charity game against Anne Arundel County employees on December 16th at Annapolis Senior High School.
“Events like charity basketball games bring our communities together and strengthen the bond between neighbors,” said Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh. “Coming together as a community to help those less fortunate is pivotal to helping build greater understanding of each other's perspectives.”
The goals of the games are to raise awareness for the Anne Arundel United initiative and collect food and clothing donations for the Anne Arundel County Food Bank.
The event is slated for 2:00 PM, December 16, 2017 at Annapolis Senior High School and will be free to the public. Fans will be treated to exciting Shuckers basketball, contests and prizes from many local vendors, including the Shuckers presenting sponsor, Buffalo Wild Wings. The first 250 fans will receive a free autograph card and Shuckers players will be available after the game on court for autograph signing.
“We’re excited to partner with Anne Arundel County to raise awareness for this important initiative, while collecting donations for the Anne Arundel Food Bank and treating local fans to a great day of fun and basketball,” commented Shuckers General Manager John Wolfe.
For Admission: Please bring your donations of new or gently used coat/sweatshirt, cans of non-perishable food or new hats, gloves or mittens.
