Evansville Thunderbolts are hosting Easterseals Giveback on October 22nd

The hockey season returns to the Ford Center when the Evansville Thunderbolts begin their trek to a Southern Professional Hockey League championship on Saturday, October 22 by hosting the Ice Bears of Knoxville, Tenn. The game will not only be the season and home opener for the team and give you a chance to watch the fast-paced, non-stop action of professional ice hockey, but also an opportunity for you to give back to the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center.

Evansville Thunderbolts Hold Easter Seal Giveback During Season Opener

The game offers several ways you can help Easterseals continue to provide therapy and other services to children and adults with disabilities across the Tri-States:

1. Special “Gate Zone” tickets

A seat behind one of the gates has been designated the Easterseals gate zone and offers $12 adult tickets and $10 child tickets for each child between the ages of 2 and 12. Not only is this $4.00 cheaper than the regular price for tickets in this section, but the Thunderbolts also donate $5.00 from every ticket sold in the zone to the rehabilitation center.

2. Chuck a puck

One of the most popular games that takes place between periods is chuck-a-puck. In case you haven’t seen it yourself, fans buy numbered foam rubber pucks in the concourse of the stadium before or during the first half of the game. The team’s representatives then draw several banners onto the ice, each representing a different prize up for grabs. On cue from the stadium announcer, fans across the stadium who have purchased a puck throw it onto the ice in hopes that it will land on one of the banners to win the prize associated with that banner. As someone who has had the opportunity to be on the ice during the game, I can tell you that standing there with hundreds of colored pucks raining down all around you is quite a sight.

Easterseals representatives will be in the arena selling the pucks at a specially designated kiosk in front of the “Chuck” section, with all proceeds from the sale going directly to the rehab center.
