Flint, Mich. - The Flint Firebirds continue their homestand at the Dort Federal Event Center this Saturday, Feb. 17, for the third-annual "Flint Tropics Night" presented by Tropi Tan Salons and Trillium Staffing. Puck drop for the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) contest is set for 7 p.m. against in-state rival, the Saginaw Spirit.
Inspired by the movie "Semi-Pro" starring Will Ferrell, the Firebirds will be wearing special themed jerseys, pants and socks throughout the game that are sure to impress everyone in attendance. Immediately following the game, there will be a live jersey auction, giving fans an opportunity to take home the game-worn Flint Tropics jersey of their choice. Proceeds will be donated to the Firebirds Charitable Foundation which benefits local youth organizations throughout Flint, Genesee County and Mid-Michigan.
The first 1,500 fans will receive Ty Dellandrea souvenir cups sponsored by Big John's and rally towels sponsored by Trillium Staffing. Randy Wise Automotive Group will be giving away 300 mini sticks for kids 12-under at the Firebirds' guest services table. Special video clips from the movie Semi Pro, tropical themed music, tropical drinks by Tropi Tan Salons, Flint Tropics merchandise and many more fun and entertaining elements will take place throughout the night.
Saturday is also "Boots for Kids" Night. Sponsored by HAP, "Boots for Kids" is a donation drive that will take place on the 17th, 23rd and 24th of February. Fans who donate a new pair of boots to the Firebirds' Merchandise Store or at the special HAP table in the lobby on game night will receive a complimentary silver level ticket courtesy of HAP.
