Nothing But Nets Night at the Seattle Storm
August 18 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm$30
Seattlelites Ashela and Jessie Elliott are bringing the Seattle Storm and Cotopaxi‘s Seattle Questival together to raise money to send insecticide-treated bed nets to families at the greatest risk of transmitting malaria. Your $30 ticket to the game will pay for eight bed nets! Seattle Storm is donating two nets per ticket and Nothing But Nets is doing a triple match.
Nothing But Nets is a global grassroots campaign to raise awareness, funds, and voices to fight malaria. In 2006, sports columnist Rick Reilly wrote a column in Sports Illustrated challenging each of his readers to donate at least $10 to send insecticide-treated bed nets to protect families from malaria-carrying mosquitoes. Since then, Nothing But Nets has raised over $70 million to help deliver 13 million bed nets to families in need, along with other crucial malaria interventions like diagnostics, treatment, and training of healthcare workers.
