Help send the Flint Flames to Miami

Jump to Comments

The Heat are already in Miami, so why not the Flames?

On Saturday, fans of basketball in Flint have an opportunity to help the Flint Flames, a fledgling semi-professional women’s basketball team, travel to national in Miami later this month. They earned the right to compete in the WBCBL tournament after pulling a couple upsets on Aug. 7.

Now, they need your help to keep going. They are hosting a fundraiser Saturday in the Flint area.

Here’s more from The Flint Journal.

Well-wishers do have another chance to show the Flames their support, however.
To help offset the cost of traveling to nationals, which will be Aug. 21-22 in Miami, the team is hosting a ‘Fundraiser 2 The Finals’ from noon-5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 14, at Thompson Creek Turkey Farm on Hill Road.

There will be a bottle drive, as well as the chance to make donations. People donating $10 or more will receive a commemorative Flames t-shirt. There will also be opportunities to meet players, play games and get discounts on Thompson Creek food for those who donate.
