As summer ends, the Hockey Season is getting geared up! One of the highlights of our year is the ability for MN Special Hockey players and families to participate in the MN Disabled Hockey Night at a Wild game in St. Paul. In addition, this night is also a GREAT fund raising opportunity for MN Special Hockey via our support of program sales and 50/50 Split the Pot Raffle. We have a couple opportunities for MN Special Hockey players and families to participate and volunteer.
Date: Saturday, October 8th before 5:00 pm. This time is when everyone must arrive to get into the arena. Late arrivals may miss the opportunity. The game starts at 7:00 pm.
Where: Xcel Energy Center, St. Paul, MN.
What: MN Wild vs. Winnipeg Jets
What we need:
1. We are in need of 24 volunteers to sell programs at this event. We need a combination of players and non-players (including adults). Selling programs is a lot of fun. Once completed (around the end of the 1st period), you get to sit down and enjoy the rest of the game! You will not have a ticket for a seat, but can find open seats at the rink. There is an added bonus that might go to some players that volunteer for this!
2. Once again, MN Special Hockey will be showcased via a short exhibition game to be played in between the first and second periods. For this we will need 12 players and 3-4 on ice coaches.
Please respond back to Lucy Cashin at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering / participating in this GREAT event:
Specifically, I need to know if you are interested in volunteering to sell programs at this event and/or if you are interested in skating (Players and Coaches/Volunteers) between periods. Once all volunteers have been gathered, we will be putting together a list of those that will be skating and those who will be selling programs. In the event we have more than 12 players wanting to skate, the criteria we will use to select the skaters will be as follows:
a. If they did not skate at this event last year.
b. If they have never skated at this event in prior years.
c. Draw names from a hat.
Each volunteer that participates as a program seller at this event will receive one free pass into the game (not a specific ticket.seat).
Each MSHA Player / Coach that skates in this event will receive one free ticket plus one ticket for an additional family member.
If you would like to purchase ticket(s), they can be purchased at a discounted rate. Let Lucy know if you are interested in this opportunity and she will send you the link when it is available. The individual ticket cost is $35 ($10 of this cost goes to Minnesota Disabled Hockey).
Please respond to email@example.com by the end of the day Friday, September 30 if you can join us for this fun night at the MN Wild! We need volunteers to make this event a success!
