June 20, 2013 - Major League Lacrosse (MLL) - Denver Outlaws
DENVER - The 7-0 Denver Outlaws will welcome the 1-6 Ohio Machine to Sports Authority Field at Mile High at 6 p.m. MDT on Saturday, June 22. The team will be holding its annual "Heroes Night" for the matchup with military members, veterans, firefighters, police and first responders receiving the opportunity to purchase tickets for just $5.
"The Outlaws are proud to continue the tradition of hosting a Heroes Night, as we appreciate everything these great men and women do," Director of Sales and Marketing Ted Tseng said. "I don\'t think we can recognize their hard work and sacrifice enough. It\'s truly amazing what they do and we just want to designate a special night for them to show how grateful we truly are for their service. I know our players feel the same way, as they get excited each year to wear their camouflage jerseys with honor and pride."
Tickets are available at DenverOutlaws.com or by calling 303-OUTLAWS.
The Outlaws will be wearing special camouflage jerseys, which will be auctioned off online the week after the game. Two team-signed camouflage jerseys will also be auctioned off via a silent auction during the game. All proceeds will benefit hero-related non-profit organizations in Colorado.
The team-signed jersey silent-auction proceeds will go to Angels of America\'s Fallen, which helps children of our fallen military and first responders develop into strong and successful adults by providing them positive mentoring and developmental activities when they are at their most crucial developmental phase of life. The individual player jerseys will be auctioned off online after the game and proceeds from those jerseys will benefit the Red Cross to help with Colorado wildfire relief and prevention efforts.
Additionally, the first 2,000 fans in attendance will receive Outlaws t-shirts courtesy of Anthony\'s Pizza and Pasta. The team will also hold a 50-50 raffle with those proceeds going to Angels of America\'s Fallen as well.
