Police and Fire Appreciation Nights Planned for 2008 Season

Wolves to honor local heroes and support charities

The Manchester Wolves have once again planned both a Police Appreciation and Fire Appreciation Nights for the upcoming 2008 "Year of the Fan" season. Both nights will feature great deals on tickets for local community heroes that serve and protect us everyday, all while supporting two great charities at the same time.

The Police Appreciation Night will be held on Saturday, May 31st at 7:05pm as the Manchester Wolves will play host to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers. Tickets for the Police Appreciation Night will be only $10 for all current and former police agency employees and their families, with $5 of the ticket going to the Special Olympics of New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Fire Appreciation Night will happen on Saturday, July 12th at 7:05pm when the Wolves will take on the Mahoning Valley Thunder. The special ticket price for all veteran and active firefighters and their families will be the same as the Police Appreciation Night, only $10 per ticket with $5 going to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
