PAL Night at the Sixers- Another Slam Dunk!
PAL celebrated the 26th anniversary of PAL Night at the Sixers on March 27th, 2012. Local radio and television personalities gathered at the Wells Fargo Center to participate in a halftime Celebrity Basketball Game with hoopsters from the PAL Girls Citywide Basketball Program and Commissioner’s Club members, as the Sixers went on to defeat the Cavaliers.
The event was sponsored by the H. Chase and Ana Maria Lenfest Foundation and NECA, Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter / IBEW Local 98. Thanks to their continued support, PAL Night has raised more than $250,000 since the event began 26 years ago.
In addition to the halftime festivities, in a pre-game ceremony, PAL honored 76ers forward Thaddeus Young for his tremendous community efforts and his outstanding support of the Police Athletic League. Other highlights included a Commissioner’s Club and Sponsors reception, an on-court check presentation with PAL event sponsors and a festive evening for all!
