Written by: Keith "Grizz" Crear | SFL Photographer/Sports Blogger

On Saturday, August 10th, Brittney Griner will  team up with Phoenix Rescue Mission to host the fourth annual “BG’s Heart & Sole Shoe Drive” before the Mercury’s game against the Dallas Wings at Talking Stick Resort Arena at 7 p.m. The successful annual event is designed to benefit the homeless throughout the Valley. The kick-off is set to begin at 5 p.m. in the Casino Arizona Pavilion.
“The impact that we have been able to make in our community with the Heart & Sole Shoe Drive has been a humbling experience for me,” said Griner. “Owning a pair of shoes to put on each day is something that I think a lot of people take for granted, and I’m excited to expand the program in collaboration with the Mercury and Phoenix Rescue Mission to continue helping those in need throughout the Valley.”  
Mercury Fans are encouraged to donate new or gently used shoes of all sizes at Talking Stick Resort Arena beginning at 5 p.m. Fans who contribute to the cause will be entered to win autographed Brittney Griner merchandise and for a chance to also win a meet-and-greet with Griner. All shoes collected through the shoe drive will be donated to the Phoenix Rescue Mission, where Griner will personally deliver shoes to those in need later in the month. See Last Year's VIDEO
Also on Saturday, the first 2500 fans will receive a Brittany Griner bobblehead. Get your tickets TODAY!
