Fighting Saints Release Promotional ScheduleAugust 29, 2012 - United States Hockey League (USHL) Dubuque Fighting Saints
The Fighting Saints will offer fans a number of nights with a giveaway item, and perhaps the most appropriate for Dubuquers comes on Friday, March 29 versus Indiana as part of "Good Fly Day."

Dubuque will wear special jerseys on at least two occasions during the 2012-13 season. The Fighting Saints will host the third annual "Pink the Rink," presented by Finley Hospital on Saturday, October 27 versus Cedar Rapids. The game will help promote breast cancer awareness, and the Fighting Saints will wear pink jerseys that will be auctioned off following the game. In establishing a new tradition, "Military Appreciation Night," will be held the night before Thanksgiving, on Wednesday, November 21 versus Muskegon. The night is presented by Radio Dubuque, and the Fighting Saints will honor veterans and those serving our country on this special evening. The team will wear military themed-jerseys that will be auctioned off following the game.
December sees the Fighting Saints at home five times, and the month will provide fans with some favorite returning promotions, and a few new ones as well. "Santa Claus and the Fighting Saints Teddy Bear Toss," presented by Queen B Radio, will help ring in the holiday season on Friday, December 14 versus Team USA-18. The following night, December 15, the Fighting Saints will host "THE LAST SAINTS GAME EVER," ahead of the Mayan calendar prediction.
