Sparks’ Quinn already giving back

Noelle Quinn, acquired by the Los Angeles Sparks yesterday, is doing something more of us should do: she bought season tickets to give away to kids. Send in your essay explaining why you think you should win them, and they’re yours. You’ve got a few weeks to do it, too:

The Bishop Montgomery HS alum, known for her many community endeavors, has decided to become a “Patron of Lisa’s Legacy.” Quinn purchased three season tickets to send three kids to each Sparks home game. In total, 51 kids will benefit from Quinn’s sponsorship. To be eligible to win a ticket sponsored by Noelle Quinn, kids can nominate themselves, their friends or be nominated by their parents beginning on Wednesday, May 6th through Monday, June 1st. In 250 words or less, entrants must describe why they feel they deserve the tickets by sending an e-mail to with “Noelle’s Tickets” in the subject line. Each winner will receive a post-game meet-and-greet with Noelle.
