Seattle Storm’s Believe in Women Night 2024 @ Climate Pledge Arena

Our region’s best 👩‍👩‍👧‍👧

📸: Seattle Storm | Climate Pledge Arena

📆 Sunday, July 14th
🕒 3 pm
📍 Climate Pledge Arena: 334 1st Ave N, Seattle

With a new season, a fresh lineup, and good standings, the 2024 Seattle Storm are on an upswing. As of this writing, they are second place in the WNBA western conference behind the ferocious Minnesota Lynx and fourth overall in the league, demolishing the likes of the Washington Mystics, the Chicago Sky, and the Dallas Wings. Most notably, their first game against the Caitlin Clark-led Indiana Fever on May 22nd was a match for the ages, an edge-of-your-seat battle in front of a sold-out and extremely vocal Climate Pledge Arena crowd, who were on their feet during the climactically extended and penalty-heavy final two minutes. (Great coaching is underrated.) 

And on Sunday, July 14th, the game against the Atlanta Dream is an extra-special event thanks to the Storm’s annual Believe in Women Night. Presented by Symetra and Force4Change, the evening honors Puget Sound female leaders who have made undeniable impacts on our quality of life. This year’s recipients will be honored at a halftime ceremony. Though the names have not been publicly released yet, chances are high you’ve come across your work. Just take a peek at last year’s honorees: 

  • Chef Kristi Brown of COMMUNION and That Brown Girl Cooks! Fame 
  • Dr. Nwando Anyaoku of Providence Swedish Health Services 
  • Veronica Very Davis of WOW Gallery and Wonder of Women International 
  • Ginger Ackerley Community Service Award-winner Tyra Mariani, the Schultz Family Foundation former president who also worked in the US Department of Education during the Obama administration 

Snag a ticket, witness the Storm make quick work of Atlanta, and give thanks to our region’s best.
