The Dallas Mavericks showed their support for the brave troops that help keep America safe. On Wednesday night, the Mavericks hosted their annual Seats for Soldiers event– an event that has taken place since 2004. The team flew in more than 100 injured soldiers for the Mav’s game against Utah Jazz.
“Our annual Seats for Soldiers night is a reminder that we don’t get to enjoy the game we love without the incredible sacrifices our soldiers make,” owner Mark Cuban said.
The courtside seats were donated by season-ticket holders, and are valued at more than $350,000. According to TMZ Sports, soldiers also received a four course meal, that came complete with a steak dinner and a seven-layer cake served for dessert. And as if that wasn’t good enough…there was more.
The Mav’s offered free tickets to the game to over 1,000 veterans.
