AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Pistons and the nonprofit organization Forgotten Harvest plan to host a Thanksgiving meal for 700 Oakland County residents in need.

The dinner is to take place Thursday evening at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

The arena level is to be transformed into a grand dining room with white linens and formal silverware.

Pistons coach Lawrence Frank, former players Rick Mahorn and John Long, employees, season ticket holders and others are to help serve the meals.

The pre-identified guests are to enjoy a spread that includes roasted turkey, holiday ham and traditional Thanksgiving sides.

The Detroit Pistons Dancers are to interact with guests.

The food donation effort for the event was spearheaded by Forgotten Harvest, which delivers food free of charge to soup kitchens, homeless shelters and more.
