Specialty Jerseys, T-Shirt Giveaway & Jersey Auction Highlight Weekend Promotions
CEDAR PARK, Texas – The Texas Stars, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Dallas Stars, will be hosting Stars & Stripes Military Appreciation Weekend presented by Sport Clips this Friday, November 8th and Saturday, November 9th at Cedar Park Center.
As part of the organization’s ongoing support of the current and former members of our armed forces, the Stars have teamed up with some of their fans and corporate partners to purchase more than 1,500 tickets for the games this weekend. That group includes: Sport Clips, ABC Home & Commercial Services, Round Rock Auto Group, Action Propane, Austin Steam Train, Upstage, Top Equipment, Heidi Blanchar, the Bisch Family, the Holder Family and the MacKay Family. These tickets will be given to local soldiers, veterans and their families as one more way for the Texas Stars to show their appreciation for the all sacrifices these brave men and women have made for our country.
Texas will wear special Stars & Stripes jerseys for the weekend and the Texas Stars Foundation will auction off the game-worn jerseys. The silent auction runs from the beginning of Friday’s game through the end of the second intermission on Saturday night. The winner of each jersey auction will be escorted by team officials backstage where they will have their newly purchased game-worn jersey delivered by that Stars player.
The festivities begin on Friday night as the Stars welcome the Milwaukee Admirals for a 7:30 p.m. face off. Brigadier General Clark W. LeMasters, Jr., the Commanding General of the 13th Sustainment Command at Fort Hood, will be at Cedar Park Center to perform the ceremonial puck drop. Friday is also a $3 Draft Beer & $4 Robert Mondavi Private Selection Wine Night and ABC Home & Commercial Services will be giving out reusable shopping totes
Saturday, November 9th is Stars & Stripes T-shirt giveaway night presented by Sport Clips as Texas once again battles Milwaukee, this time at 7:00 p.m. The Austin Astronomical Society and Austin Planetarium will be hosting a Star Party, providing public star gazing outside the Cedar Park Center’s main entrance from 5:30 p.m. until the game ends. Saturday’s game is also a Coke Zero Family Four Pack Night, which includes four tickets, four hot dogs and four sodas for as little as $48, and a Texas Lottery Lucky Row Night, where one row of fans will win scratch off tickets courtesy of Texas Lottery when the first Stars player scores a goal.
Throughout the weekend fans can get a mystery puck at the Texas Stars Foundation table. For each $20 donation to the Foundation, fans will receive their choice of a Stars mystery puck. Each puck has been signed by one or more Texas Stars players and only after the puck has been selected and unwrapped will the mystery be revealed.
