Philadelphia 76ers Are FTK

If you live near Philadelphia and need something to do over break, the Philadelphia 76ers will yet again donate a portion of ticket sales to THON for its January 6 game against the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Wells Fargo Center.

The team will donate $10 for every pre-ordered ticket sold using the promo code “THON” on their website. Tickets start at $22 each, which can be a cheap way for anyone who lives “right outside of Philly” to survive what could turn into a boring break while also donating to THON. The 76ers have held THON nights in the past, along with the Philadelphia Phillies, New York Mets, Pittsburgh Pirates, and State College Spikes, allowing students to be FTK even when they are outside of Happy Valley.

“We’re excited for this game because it provides a way for our large alumni and supporter base in Philadelphia to support THON over break,” said THON’s Public Relations Director, Dana Giacobello. “It’s also a great opportunity to spread awareness to those who may not be familiar with THON.”

For more information on the game, check out THON’s official Facebook event.
