SARATOGA SPRINGS – On Saturday, Oct. 14 at 7:00 p.m. join Adirondack Thunder at the Glens Falls Civic Center as they play to raise funds for the Shelters of Saratoga (SOS) organization. Tickets are $15 and $5 of each ticket sold will be donated to SOS. Adirondack Thunder will be playing Brampton Beast.
“The Civic Center actually approached us with a fundraiser they’re doing to support local non-profits and we had recently done a community resource day at the Civic Center and they approached us while we were there and we thought it would be nice to get involved,” said Rosemary Riedhammer, director of development and marketing at SOS.
SOS is asking their supporters to come out and support the shelter in a different way with a broader spectrum, therefore, getting more people involved. SOS’s typical events reach a very specific group, mostly adults, and the Adirondack Thunder game is a good way to involve whole families in a community service act that they can do together.
If SOS sells 100 tickets, they will be eligible for free ads at the arena for a year. To buy tickets for the event, visit www.coolinsuringarena.com and go to the events and tickets tab, once there, use the promo code SOSTHUNDER.
“We just hope people will come out and support us. Glens Falls is just a couple exits up the Northway and we hope to see everyone there,” Riedhammer said.
