“I fell in love with the Lynx organization from the very first game I attended. I was so impressed that the next day I Googled “Lynx booster club” and found my way to the President’s Circle. I’m grateful for the opportunity to support this top-notch, trailblazing group of leaders – and I appreciate the chance to support gender equality outside the realm of national politics!”
