January 15, 2018 - ECHL (ECHL) News Release
PRINCETON, N.J. - The ECHL is pleased to announce that Altha Victorino, of Tulsa, Oklahoma is the winner of the ECHL's 30th Anniversary Memories Contest. Altha won a trip for two to attend the 2018 CCM/ECHL All-Star Classic and Hall of Fame Banquet in Indianapolis.
Altha is a second year season-ticket holder with the Tulsa Oilers, supporting her favorite ECHL team in every way she can; "adopting" an Oiler, bidding on various jerseys in post-game auctions and bringing her family and friends to attend games with her. She plans to bring her son, Meisan, to accompany her to Indianapolis for the festivities.
"This entire experience will be a moment that will last a lifetime for me. What makes it even better is that it will be something I get to share with Meisan since he was the first of my two kids to go to a hockey game," Victorino said. "This is what memories are made of; family, good times, and moments that last forever. Winning this contest is one of those moments that will last forever."
"The Tulsa Oilers organization is so excited that Altha won the 30th Anniversary Memories Contest," said General Manager, Taylor Hall. "Altha is an incredible fan. It is a huge honor for us to have such a great supporter represent our amazing Tulsa fans."
Fans in each of the League's 27 markets had the opportunity to submit their most significant memory from the past 30 years of the ECHL. Submissions were evaluated on originality and uniqueness.
"We are very fortunate in the ECHL to have an extremely loyal and enthusiastic fan base in each of our cities. Our 30^th Anniversary Memories Contest winner Altha Victorino is a shining example of these loyal fans," ECHL Commissioner Brian McKenna stated. "We look forward to having Altha and her son Meisan in Indianapolis to create more ECHL memories."
