CHARITABLE SATURDAY AT THE NEST
Springfield, Mass. - In the midst of the holiday season, the Springfield Falcons will be in the giving mode this Saturday at 7:00 p.m. when they host the Manchester Monarchs at the MassMutual Center.
As part of Gary Rome Auto Group Night, fans are encouraged to bring a toy to donate to Toys for Tots, a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. The Toys for Tots bins will be located at a table in the concourse under section 1 and will be manned by on-site Marines. As an incentive to support this program, any fan who brings a toy for donation will receive a free ticket voucher for the Falcons' home game on Saturday, Dec. 15 when Springfield welcomes St. John's to the MassMutual Center at 7:30 p.m. (one voucher per person).
Fans can also purchase limited-edition, Falcons-autographed holiday glass ornaments for $5 each along with select autographed merchandise at a table behind section 1, with all proceeds going directly to Springfield Falcons Charities, the club's official charitable organization.
During the intermissions, fans will be invited to participate in a holiday sing-a-long. Santa Claus will also be venturing down from the North Pole to meet and greet Falcons fans and hang out with his friend Screech.
Fans can save $5 off a full-price adult ticket by showing their Big Y card at the MassMutual Center Box Office up to two hours before this Saturday's game.
Single-game tickets to see the Falcons in 2012-2013 can be purchased at the MassMutual Center Box Office from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. through game time on Saturday home dates, and starting four hours prior to Sunday home contests. Fans can also purchase tickets by logging onto Ticketmaster.com. For information about discounted group packages to Falcons home games, call (413) 739-GOAL (4625).
