Sixers to host LGBT night


The Philadelphia 76ers will host its third Pride Night next week.

The team will welcome LGBTs and allies to its game versus the Grizzlies, 7:30 p.m. Dec. 13 at Wells Fargo Center. Proceeds from a 50/50 raffle at the game will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania.  Also that night, ACLU communication specialist Ben Bowens will be honored as a “Hero Among Us.”

The Sixers last staged an LGBT night in 2010, and before that in 2006. To buy tickets for seats in the community section, use promo code PRIDE at checkout:
