PRESS RELEASE – Baseball and hockey aren’t that different. They both require top notch hand-eye coordination. They both require a heavily armored man standing in front of objects being chucked at them up to 100 miles per hour. And once in a while there’s fighting, although one sport looks more favorably on that than the other.
On Thursday, June 7 against the Camden Riversharks, the York Revolution will host Hockey Night at Sovereign Bank Stadium, just as another thrilling NHL Playoff season winds down. (Don’t worry puck fans, June 7 is an off day in the Stanley Cup Finals between games 4 and 5, gates open at 5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m. game time.) The Revs have partnered with the Hershey Bears for the event, which will feature a “Fewest Teeth Contest,” with our gummy winner taking home four tickets to the Bears 2012-13 home opener! A lack of teeth never stopped any hockey player, in fact, it’s usually a badge of honor for toughness. And now, it won’t stop a lucky fan from big savings either.
It’s pretty simple…there will be a table on the concourse, and if you think you have the fewest teeth in the ballpark, come on up. We’ll take a look, get your name and contact info and late in the game we’ll announce our winner. Is a lifetime of dentistry issues worth four free tickets to an exciting hockey game? The Revolution says yes.
The Hershey mascot “Coco” will also be in attendance to greet fans and take pictures. The Bears have also generously donated a team-signed hockey stick that will be raffled off to a lucky winner – raffle tickets will be just $2 apiece with 100% of the money raised donated to Family First Health. Family First Health provides medical and dental services at five locations around York and Adams Counties, including a location in Downtown York.
All fans that evening are encouraged to wear their hockey jersey or “sweater” if you’re Canadian. The Revolution staff will gift four free passes to the fan wearing the most obscure jersey, which will be good for any remaining Revolution game in 2012 based on availability.
