Local activist helps bring out 14,000 for Phoenix Mercury home opener

Chris Owens, a local artist and activist, purchased 7,000 Phoenix Mercury tickets for the upper deck to sell to members of the community with a percentage of the money raised going to a nonprofit called School of Hip-hop Phoenix. He helped bring in thousands of people to the Mercury's home opener to hopefully inspire young girls who want to play pro ball.
