Texas Tornado Winterfest to Benefit Children's Medical Center
January 04, 2012
Looking for something new and fun to do now that 2012 has begun. For only $8, you can watch the Texas Tornado hockey team take on the Wichita Falls Wildcats or the Odessa Jackalopes and support patients and programs at Children's, as well.
On Friday and Saturday, January 13 and 14, the team will be wearing Children's branded hockey jerseys at the Dr Pepper Arena in Frisco and each of the jerseys will bear the name of a Children's patient. A percentage of proceeds from ticket sales and merchandise during the Winterfest game series will benefit programs and services at Children's.
By purchasing your tickets (see flyer for details) you can both help Children's raise money for vital programs and services and enjoy this unique opportunity to have a family-fun night with the Texas Tornado team.
We hope to see you out there!
