On Friday night versus the Ice Bats, it will be a "Gift for Everyone" as every fan through the door will receive a special gift courtesy of the SteelHounds, Greenwood Chevrolet/Hummer, Casals de Spa and Salon, Arby's, Chick-Fil-A, Bahama Tanning, YMCA, Olive Garden, Damon's, Judi Conti, Dairy Queen and McDonald's.
