I haven’t put much personal information on this blog, and while I don’t intend to moving forward, there will be an event this January at The Palace that involves both the Pistons and mentoring – two things that are very important to me personally.
I became a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters close to two years ago, and I am currently the Program Director for into the Mentor Michigan College Coaching Corps – an AmeriCorps program that utilizes the power and passion of AmeriCorps members to strengthen and grow mentoring.
On Saturday, January 22, the Detroit Pistons and the Palace of Auburn Hills will celebrate mentoring. Annually, the Pistons host several “Community Nights” at the Palace, where both awareness and funds are raised for different community needs. This year, we are incredibly fortunate to have the Pistons rallying in support of mentoring.
Throughout the evening, mentoring will be featured throughout The Palace and (hopefully) during the game as well. In addition, the Pistons have made discounted tickets available via this link (and this link only!). Further, for each ticket that is sold through this promotion, the Pistons will donate $5 to Mentor Michigan, 100% of which will be granted to local mentoring programs throughout the state. When purchasing tickets, please use the keyword “mentor“.
It goes without saying that this is an incredible opportunity for mentoring, and I wanted to make my readers aware of it. If you’re planning on attending a Pistons game this year, it would mean a lot if you are able to make it this one.
