We celebrated their achievements together as a family and they remain a great inspiration to me.
“I have always been a huge fan of women’s sports and I am in awe of the work the players, staff and WNBA continue to do to grow the sport and empower future generations of female athletes. It is an honor to be able to contribute in any way to that mission as a member of the Aces organization.” it is priceless.
