The Firebirds return home to Flint for the club’s 5th-annual “Pink Out The Rink Night” this Saturday, October 12th. Puck drop is set for 7 p.m. (ET) at the Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center and great seats are still available!
For the fifth-straight year, the Firebirds are teaming up with the McLaren Flint Foundation to raise money to help in the fight against breast cancer. Because the pink ribbon is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness, the Firebirds are asking all fans to wear pink to the game. Fans can bid on game worn Flint Firebirds’ player jerseys in a live auction that will take place immediately following the game. All proceeds will be donated to breast cancer research through the McLaren Flint Foundation.
Additionally, the first 400 women will receive a free Pink Carnation courtesy of Bentley Florist.
The Firebirds will also have Pink Out merchandise at the Firebirds’ merchandise store, The Birds Nest, inside the Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center.
Single game tickets for all Firebirds games are $12 for Bronze, $16 for Silver, $20 for Gold and $26 for VIP seating (Seating Chart). All seats are reserved / assigned seating. Fans can purchase tickets by calling (810) 744-0580, in-person at the Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center Box Office or online at ticketmaster.com here.
