by Brett Gleason

TACOMA, Wash. -- The Tacoma Stars have teamed up with Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland and Kent Mayor Suzette Cooke to benefit local charities through the sale of tickets to the Stars season-opening contest on Friday, Nov. 6 at the ShoWare Center.

For each ticket sold, $5.00 will be donated to the charity of the respective mayor’s choosing - Mayor Strickland has chosen the Tacoma Boys and Girls Clubs, while Mayor Cooke has chosen the Kent Parks Foundation. Tickets are available for purchase by city employees.

“I am proud to work with the Tacoma Rainiers and Tacoma Stars to support the Boys and Girls Clubs,” Mayor Strickland said. “As an alum of the Boys and Girls Clubs, I know first hand that they provide our youth with opportunities to succeed and can positively impact lives.”

“I am very pleased to welcome back the Tacoma Stars and their fans to Kent’s ShoWare Center for all the action of arena soccer,” Mayor Cooke said. “Buying tickets for the home opener is a win-win! Not only is it a great opportunity to support the Stars, but $5 for every ticket sold will help more kids participate in city recreation programs.”

City employees can purchase tickets and support their mayor’s charity by calling Charlotte Freed at (253) 722-1036.
