AUSTIN, Texas, November 6, 2017 /For immediate release/ — The NBA G League Austin Spurs and OSD have agreed to extend the current partnership for the Military Appreciation Game Night occurring each Spring through the 2018-19 season.

OSD Executive Director, Glenn Banton, said, “Our relationship with the Spurs Sports & Entertainment has allowed us to host a memorable afternoon of basketball celebrating our military heroes and their families for the past two years. We look forward to continuing the impact and furthering the shared passion for our veterans into additional community outreach endeavors in and around Central Texas.”

The March 2017 game was sponsored by Deloitte Consulting and E-Team Realty Austin hosting nearly 4,000 military community members for a great night of basketball. The event raised over $20,000 for OSD military and veteran impact programs.
