AUBURN HILLS (WWJ) – The Detroit Pistons are hosting their 4th Annual Pistons Care Telethon benefiting all Boys & Girls Clubs in Michigan on Friday, March 18 at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

The team is devoting the entire day leading up to the Pistons game against the New York Knicks, including their in-arena presentation and game broadcasts, to raise money for Boys & Girls Clubs.

The Boys & Girls Clubs will utilize all proceeds from this year’s telethon to fund memberships, programs and initiatives that help children enhance their lives in the areas of character and leadership; education and career development; the arts; sports, fitness and recreation; and health and life skills.

“Together, Boys & Girls Clubs across the state serve some 100,000 children annually, ages 6-18, 1st -12th grades,” Len Krichko, President and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan, said in a release.

There are several ways you can donate to the 2011 Pistons Care Telethon. You can make a donation online, bid on exclusive items in the online auction or call (855) 372-2011.

You can also donate by purchasing discount tickets to Friday night’s game against the Knicks. Grab a 100-level seat for just $40, or a 200-level seat for only $20, and half of the proceeds will be donated towards the Pistons Care fundraiser.

Even if you can’t make it to the game, you can still catch all the action on 97.1 The Ticket, beginning at 7 pm.
