EVERETT – The Everett Silvertips have announced our 2014-15 promotional schedule including fundraisers, theme nights and giveaways for the upcoming WHL season. In addition to many of the promotions Silvertips fans have come to know and love over the years, the team is also introducing a number of new theme nights including a “Fans’ Choice Promo” to add to the atmosphere inside Comcast Arena this season.
Everett’s 36-game home schedule begins with opening night on Friday, Oct. 3 vs. the Kelowna Rockets. 27 Silvertips home games will be played on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays up through the home finale vs. the Victoria Royals on Saturday, March 21.
Headlining this year’s returning promotions is our annual “Pink the Rink” night vs. Seattle on Oct. 25. In conjunction with Safeway and Providence Regional Medical Center, Pink the Rink has raised over $300,000 to fight breast cancer locally over the last five years. Also returning this season are other popular community-oriented benefit nights including our “Fill the House” for Housing Hope on opening night, the annual Christmas House Holiday Drive highlighted on Dec. 13, Local Heroes Night on Jan. 17 and Navy Night on Feb. 20.
We’re encouraging fans to get involved and have some fun with our planned theme nights, including the return of “90’s Night” and our “Classy Hockey Game”. We’ve also added a “Purple vs. Crimson Night” ahead of the big game pitting Washington vs. Washington State on Nov. 28, “Ugly Sweater Night” tying in with our holiday festivities on Dec. 13 and both a “Guys Night Out” on Oct. 10 and “Girls Night Out” on Oct. 24.
Also new for this season is a theme night that will be determined by a vote of Silvertips fans. We’re accepting suggestions for our first-ever “Fans’ Choice Promo Night” to be held on Feb. 28 vs. Prince George. Submit your ideas via social media by using the hashtag #FansChoicePromo when you interact with us on Twitter and Facebook and we’ll select finalists for a fan vote that will determine the theme for that game! Don’t be afraid to get creative and keep the suggestions rolling in.
Giveaway items this season will again include magnetic schedules courtesy of Lamoureux Real Estate and Sound Transit, three player magnet giveaways thanks to Pratt Pest Management, two kid’s mesh t-shirt nights courtesy of BECU, two Silvertips hat nights with Buzz Inn Steakhouse, a pair of cow bell nights courtesy of Monster Energy Drink, “Pink the Rink” glow sticks from the Providence General Foundation and the Safeway Foundation, team trading card sets thanks to Mountain Pacific Bank and team photo posters on Fan Appreciation Night, also courtesy of Mountain Pacific Bank.
