Often when folks say they are giving a portion of their proceeds to charity, you have to wonder – HOW MUCH? It was one of the things I liked about Don Imus – give a FIXED amount and announce it up front. None of this unknown stuff, where you really don’t know if they gave a penny or a thousand dollars.
Well the Twin City Cyclones will donate all proceeds from ticket sales from its exhibition game on Thursday, October 20th to the United Way of Forsyth County. That is 100%. It’s not like 100% is unknown. Count heads, multiple by $3 and write the check to the United Way.
This is WIN-WIN-WIN. United Way gets money. Cyclones gets fans. Fans get hockey cheap.
The exhibition game is Oct. 20 against the Knoxville Ice Bears. It will be played at the annex to the Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $3 each.
“The Cyclones support our United Way’s mission of creating real, lasting changes in community conditions,” said Mark Richards, the Cyclones’ general manager. “We hope people will take this opportunity to see great hockey and to help their community as well.”
