SUDBURY, ON – The Wolves will host a double-header weekend filled with COMMUNITY AND CHARITY as the Wolves host the Saginaw Spirit on Friday February 12th and Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds on Saturday February 13th. Both games start at 7:00pm.
The Sudbury Wolves in partnership with ST. LOUIS BAR & GRILL are pleased to present SUPERHERO NIGHT in support of NORTHERN ONTARIO FAMILIES OF CHILDREN WITH CANCER (NOFCC) which will take place on Friday February 12, 2016 when the Wolves host the Saginaw Spirit for the only time this season. The Wolves will hit the ice once again on Saturday February 13th for the annual VALE SUDBURY SATURDAY NIGHT.
On Friday night, the Sudbury Wolves will wear special Superhero jerseys, which will be auctioned off during the game to help raise money for the NOFCC. Funds will also be raised through a special superhero raffle and SKATER’S EDGE will also be selling a limited number of Superhero t-shirts for $15 with $5 from every t-shirt sold going towards the NOFCC. The Sudbury Wolves are encouraging fans to dress up as their favourite superhero. Kids 12 and under wearing full superhero costumes will be admitted for only $5 at the door and will receive a voucher for a free small popcorn and pop. There will also be prizes for best superhero costumes. Proceeds from the 50/50 will also be donated to the NOFCC.
The Sudbury Wolves are the first team in the Ontario Hockey League to wear Superhero jerseys. “Superheroes are a perfect tie in with the NOFCC as superheroes are one of themes used to spread awareness for children with cancer,” said Sudbury Wolves Owner Mark Burgess. “The NOFCC is such a great organization helping local families facing these difficult times and we are pleased to be able to partner with them for this special event. The bravery that these children show day in and day out, makes them superheroes in their own right. The least we can do is to try to be superheroes for them for one night.”
“We are so incredibly proud to have been picked by the Wolves for the Superhero night in support of NOFCC. Being involved with such a big local organization provides a huge opportunity to raise awareness for our charity and childhood cancer,” said Dayna Caruso, Executive Director, NOFCC. “We are so thankful to the organizers for all their hard work and dedication to families in our community and around the North.”
The Sudbury Wolves unveiled the special Superhero jersey that the team will wear on Tuesday morning at a media event at ST. LOUIS BAR & GRILL.
The Wolves will host the 11th annual VALE SUDBURY SATURDAY NIGHT match-up on Saturday night when the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds come to town. The Sudbury Wolves and Vale will once again team-up to celebrate MINING, HOCKEY & CHARITY; three keys elements of the cultural fabric of Greater Sudbury. Fans in attendance will receive a free set of FIRE & ICE HOCKEY CARDS from Greater Sudbury Fire Services and the first 500 fans will receive scarves to cheer on the Wolves, courtesy of Vale. The SHAFT BOTTOM BOYS will perform during the second intermission and Vale will make a community investment announcement at centre ice with United Way Sudbury and Nipissing District.
Saturday’s game is also sponsored by BELL FIBE as it marks the final game of the BELL CHALLENGE CUP this season.
