YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Youngstown Phantoms are inviting Mahoning Valley charitable organizations to bring groups to the Friday, Nov. 11 game vs. the Muskegon Lumberjacks where they have the chance to receive up to 10 donated bicycles. The puck drops at 7:15 p.m. at the Covelli Centre and tickets for charities are completely free!

For every 10 members each organization brings, they will receive one donated bike, up to a maximum of 10 bikes. Phantom Fireworks showroom managers are assembling the bikes as part of a team building exercise in conjunction with the annual Fall Phantom Fireworks Managers Meeting, but there are only 60 bicycles available, so organizations should register quickly!

The "Great Bike Giveaway" is just part of what is sure to be one of the most fun-filled Phantoms games of the season. Food Network personality Guy Fieri will be in attendance and drop the ceremonial first puck that night and also host a competition at the first intermission.

Additionally, the Phantoms will be honoring those who have served or currently serve in the Armed Forces with half-price tickets and local country artist Sarah Turner will be performing a rendition of "God Bless America".

Single game tickets for the 2011-12 season are on sale now. Season ticket and flex plans start at the low price of just $90. Call the Phantoms office today at 330.747.7825 for more information or to make a reservation today! For a complete Phantoms schedule, visit
