MILITARY APPRECIATION: FRIDAY, SATURDAY
The Alaska Aces have announced that Military Appreciation Weekend is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Nov. 15-16 at Sullivan Arena for two games against the Las Vegas Wranglers at 7:15 p.m.
Continuing a tradition in Anchorage, the two games will be uniquely themed to recognize members of the U.S. Armed Forces. Fans can purchase or donate tickets to current military members as part of the “Adopt-a-Patriot” program by dropping them off at the Aces office, Specialty Truck & Auto, or by calling the Aces office at 907.258.ACES.
In recognition of military members’ service, the Aces will be dressed in special, patriotic-themed jerseys on both nights which will be auctioned off to fans after Saturday’s game. Additionally, there will be representatives from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and military guest speakers present at both games.
Any season ticket holders interested in donating unused tickets to a military member can drop them off at the Aces office or by calling Keith Manternach, owner of Specialty Truck & Auto, at (907) 575-1637 to arrange for ticket pick-up. Tickets can also be dropped off at Specialty Truck & Auto, located at 8225 Hartzell Rd. in Anchorage.
Fans interested in purchasing tickets, on behalf of military members, can order through the Aces office or Specialty Truck & Auto. All donated tickets will be used by active military members and their families.
Fans are also encouraged to join the Aces Toys for Tots event, in association with the U.S. Marine Corps, at Sullivan Arena. All fans attending are asked to bring new, unwrapped toys (plush preferred), such as teddy bears and throw them onto the ice following the Aces first goals on both Friday and Saturday. Fans can also bring large new, unwrapped toys and donate them at the Sullivan Arena entrance. All toys collected will be donated this holiday season as part of the Toys for Tots program.
The Aces will also host Las Vegas on Sunday, concluding a three game series at 3:05 p.m. For more information, please call the Aces office at 907.258.ACES or visit the Aces Facebook page at www.facebook.com/alaskaaceshockey.
