San Antonio Talons Support Bexar County And United Way With Pre-Season Game

The San Antonio Talons have partnered up with United Way for their pre-season game on March 6. "The Talons are proud to donate our proceeds to the United Way. It is a very worth while charity to be partnered with," said Talon's owner David Lynd. "We hope San Antonio turns out in a big way to support the San Antonio community and our hometown football team!"
With a 7:30pm kick off time, all seats will be available with a $5 general admission ticket. All proceeds from every seat sold will go straight to the United Way. On game day, fans can bring five cans of food to the Food Bank donation station set up and trade them in for a ticket voucher.
"In celebration of the San Antonio community contributing over $50 million this year to support children, families and emergency services across Bexar County, United Way is pleased to partner with the Talons to say thank you to the community." said Doug Yeiser, United Way's vice president of strategic markets. "We rely on the generosity of people throughout the community, and invite everyone to enjoy a night out with friends and family," he said.
United Way is one of the largest private investors in health and human services programs in San Antonio and Bexar County. United Way brings people together through the 2-1-1 Help Line, partner agency programs, Eastside Promise Neighborhood initiatives, and other community work that helps children, strengthens families and neighborhoods, and provides emergency services to those in immediate need of food, clothing, shelter and disaster services.
The San Antonio Talons are entering into their second season in the Arena Football League (AFL). The team was moved to San Antonio from Tulsa, OK in 2012 and won the AFL's Central Division title, as well as hosted their first AFL playoff game in the 2012 season.
