Canton Charge in the Community

By Sean Wyatt | June 22, 2015

TREES FOR THREES

The Cleveland Cavaliers (Cavs) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), one of the leading professional services networks in the world, are working together to make our community greener through “Trees for Threes”. PwC and the Cavs committed to planting one tree for every three pointer the Cavs make during the regular season home games. The trees will be planted throughout Northeast Ohio with the help of Cavs team members, PwC employees, the Western Reserve Land Conservancy, and The Davey Tree Expert Company – the tree provider for “Trees for Threes”. Together, the Cavs and PwC, are teaming with others in the community to enrich the areas where people live and work, helping to sustain the environment and provide green space for generations to come.  This season, 433 3’s were made at Quicken Loans Arena!

To tip off each season, the NBADL and its teams host a variety of hands-on service events in a collaborative effort to give back to children, families, and the community and to increase fan awareness about the importance of service.

COMMUNITY TICKET PROGRAM
Through the generosity of our season ticket holders and corporate partners, the Charge is pleased to provide complimentary tickets to children and families who would not normally be able to attend a Charge home game.
