Banding Together to Fight Homelessness

The Seattle Storm’s all-time leading scorer and the WNBA’s all-time assists leader, point guard Sue Bird joined iconic Seattle-native band Pearl Jam in an effort to alleviate homelessness in Seattle. As part of the Banding Together to Fight Homeless campaign, Bird, in partnership with Ames Bros., had a custom pair of shoes designed that she wore in her WNBA-record 10th All-Star game on Saturday, July 28 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Postgame, the shoes were signed by Bird and auctioned off. The shoes raised $2,210 for the Home Shows fund.
