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, Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. (ET) and Sunday Dec. 1 at 2 p.m.
Saturday, the Firebirds host the London Knights for the club’s fifth-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. There will also be Flint-made Teddy bears available to purchase for $10 on the Dort Federal Event Center concourse. All proceeds will benefit the Teddy Bear Patrol of Genesee County and St. Luke’s North End Woman’s Life (N.E.W.) Center, while supplies last. The stuffed animals will be collected and donated to Hurley Children’s Hospital – Children’s Miracle Network, Whaley Children’s Center, Michigan State Police and other 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. Additionally, the first 800 fans through the doors will receive a Firebirds’ branded Christmas ornament, compliments of PFCU.
Sunday, the Firebirds welcome the Sarnia Sting for Santa’s ‘Family “FUN”day.’ Come enjoy the holiday spirit and get a free picture taken with Santa Claus, his elves and real-life reindeer from 1-3 p.m. 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.
