NEW YORK, NY – SEPTEMBER 1, 2017 – The New York Liberty announced today it will partner with Mary’s Court Foundation to make a financial contribution to aid Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
The Liberty will make a donation of $1 for every ticket sold to its game against the San Antonio Stars on Friday night, Sept. 1, at Madison Square Garden, while Mary’s Court, established by Liberty Team President Isiah Thomas, will make a donation of $5,000.
