The annual Night OUT at the Mystics will be held on Friday, July 25 vs. the Tulsa Shock. Tickets are available NOW HERE. Use the code “teamdc” when ordering!
Team DC is proud to partner with HRC and Rainbow Families to make this a Pride Night to be proud of! Tickets are on the 100 level (really good seats!) and are just $25 each with $5 of each sale going to one of the three partner organizations.
There will be face painting, balloons and other activities for the kids before the game in the Pride Concourse in Verizon Center starting at 5:30 PM until game time. This is a great opportunity to meet other same-sex parents and enjoy a fun Night OUT with the Mystics!
