Griffins to go ‘purple’ to fight cancer on March 8th and will hold a Star Wars night on March 9th

Pretty spiffy promotional stuff from the Grand Rapids Griffins' PR department:


Friday, March 8, 2013 vs. Hamilton Bulldogs
Presented by Van Andel Institute

Time: 7 p.m. at Van Andel Arena (doors open at 6 p.m.)

Purple Community Game: Nearly everything at Van Andel Arena will be in sync with the color associated with cancer survivors, as the Griffins host their second annual “Purple Community Game” to benefit the Van Andel Institute. The Griffins will wear special purple jerseys that will be, autographed and auctioned to the public in the Fifth Third Bank Vault restaurant after the game, with proceeds benefiting VAI. Additionally, fans can enjoy many other purple elements, ranging from purple concession items to purple-themed songs and graphics during the game.

Purple T-Shirt Giveaway: 10,000 fans will receive a purple t-shirt, courtesy of Van Andel Institute.

Dollar Beers and Hot Dogs: Enjoy $1 hot dogs and $1 domestic drafts from 6-8 p.m., while supplies last.

College Night: Presented by H&R Block, college students can show their ID to purchase an upper bowl ticket for $13 (or $11 in advance at The Zone) and stop by the McFadden’s concourse table to receive a free pass to the post-game party at McFadden's.  

Free Ride Friday: Ride the Rapid to and from any Friday game and enjoy complimentary fare by showing your ticket to the game. Visit ridetherapid.org for schedule information, routes and maps.

Get in the D-ZONE: Every Friday night is a Griffins WGRD D-Zone night. Avoid the concession lines and get your $1 beers and $1 hot dogs served to you in your seats. Call (616) 774-4585 ext. 2 or visit http://griffinshockey.com/dzone to get your tickets today.

And Star Wars nerds (we like nerds, geeks and other smart people and/or those who don't feel like they belong with the "in" crowd here at TMR), rejoice!

Saturday, March 9, 2013 vs. Lake Erie Monsters
Presented by Consumers Energy

Time: 7 p.m. at Van Andel Arena (doors open at 6 p.m.)

Star Wars Night: The 501st Legion returns for another Star Wars Night, with proceeds benefiting the Griffins Youth Foundation. Over 55 costumed characters will be roaming the arena and interacting with fans. In addition to light sabers and Griffins Star Wars-themed pucks and t-shirts being sold on the concourse, a photo area will be set up on the concourse for fans to get their picture taken with their favorite characters for a small donation.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
