Flint, Mich. – Great family fun promotions are scheduled for this weekend as the Flint Firebirds return home to the Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center for a pair of games this Saturday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. (ET) and Sunday Dec. 2 at 2 p.m.
Saturday, the Firebirds host the Erie Otters for the club’s fourth-annual ‘Teddy Bear Toss’ Night. Fans are encouraged to bring new or gently used teddy bears or stuffed animals to the game and after the Firebirds score their first goal, fans can launch them onto the ice. The stuffed animals will be collected and donated to the various local charities throughout Flint & Genesee County. Last year, the Firebirds donated more than 1,000 stuffed animals to the local charities. Fans are asked to bring and throw their stuffed animals in bags so that they stay dry and safe for the kids.
Sunday, the Firebirds welcome the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds for a ‘Family Sunday “FUN”day.’ Come enjoy the holiday spirit and get your picture taken with Santa Claus. There will also be a DIY ornament designing station, while supplies last. Every Sunday Firebirds’ home game is a Family “FUN”day featuring up to 2 free kids tickets with the purchase of an adult ticket, as well as a post-game ‘skate with Firebirds players,’ and an autograph signing session with Firebirds players following the game.
Single game tickets for all Firebirds games are $12 Bronze, $16 Silver, $20 Gold and $26 VIP seating (Seating Chart). All seats are reserved / assigned seating.
