Flint, Mich. – With only two home games remaining this season, the Firebirds return to the Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center to host the Windsor Spitfires this Saturday, Mar. 9 at 7 p.m. (ET).
Saturday is Overager Night, Whaley Night and Scout Night! The Firebirds’ two “Overagers,” Hakon Nilsen and Emanuel Vella will be honored prior to the game. In the OHL, an overager is a player that begins the season at 20 years of age. A team is only allowed to have three overage players on their roster after the trade deadline in January, which is their final allowed season in the OHL. Also, all scouts in attendance receive the Firebirds’ official ‘scout patch.’
In addition, the Firebirds are teaming up with the Whaley Children’s Center (WCC) for a donation drive where fans can bring in five or more personal hygiene items to receive a complimentary Silver Level ticket, presented by Genesee Packaging, Inc. and Landaal Packaging and sponsored by Corrigan Moving Systems, Big John Steak & Onion, and Oasis Outsourcing. Proceeds from the Firebirds’ gameday 50-50 raffle will be donated to WCC.
The Whaley Children’s Center is a private agency that focuses on caring for children and families in crisis and has a great need for a variety of personal hygiene products including antibiotic cream, band-aids, chapstick, children’s chewable Motrin/Tylenol/Pepto-Bismol, disposable cleaning wipes, ethnic hair care products, feminine hygiene products, first aid kits, hair brushes, heat packs, laundry soap & scent boosters, liquid body wash, lotion (hypoallergenic), Nair, paper towel, overnight pads, toilet paper, undergarments, twin XL bedding, etc.
