Rhythmettes selling T-Wolves tickets as fundraising project

The Wadena-Deer Creek Rhythmettes are selling tickets to Minnesota Timberwolves-Utah Jazz pro basketball game as a fundraiser for their team.

WDC coach Beth Motschenbacher was recently contacted by the Timberwolves. The Rhythmettes will receive a portion of the ticket sales by selling tickets to a Dec. 22 game at the Target Center in Minneapolis. If the team is able to sell $1,200 worth of tickets they would also be invited to dance before the game.

Wadena came to the Timberwolves 'attention earlier this summer when a tornado hit the town. A great deal of athletic equipment was lost in the tornado.

Tickets can be purchased from Motschenbacher or her dancers. Ticket prices are $15, $40 and $100. Motschenbacher said donations from people who do not want to attend the game would also be welcome.
