NKF Night at the Wizards

Join Us for NKF Night at the Wizards!

Saturday, April 12 at 7 pm v. Milwaukee Bucks

Celebrate "Donate Life Month" with the National Kidney Foundation and the Washington Regional Transplant Community. Learn more about organ donation and be there for the Wizards playoff push at the 2nd to last game of the regular season. Seats are as low as $17, and a portion of the proceeds will support NKF's programs and services.

As a special treat for our guests, the first 25 kids registered are invited to go down on the court at half-time and form the Fan Tunnel!! All guests are invited on the court post-game to shoot foul shots!
