The Oklahoma City Barons are holding their annual Military Appreciation Night on March 24 when they host the Grand Rapids Griffins at 7 p.m. The game that evening is the culmination of several fundraising opportunities and events. The first 2,000 in attendance receive a free Barons' cammo t-shirt and everyone in attendance will receive a miniature American flag.

That afternoon, before the Barons game, the Oklahoma City Police and Fire Departments will play the Tulsa Police and Fire Departments in the second annual Guns-n-Hoses games.  Faceoff for the Guns-n-Hoses game is 4 p.m.

A ticket to the Guns and Hoses game will include admission to the afternoon charity contest and the Barons’ game at 7 p.m. Advanced ticket prices start at $14. $4 from each ticket purchased for the Guns and Hoses game will benefit the Oklahoma Brain and Tumor Foundation as well as the Officer Chad Peery Foundation.

That same night from 5:30-6:30 p.m., there will be a Youth Sports Injury Prevention Seminar sponsored by the McBride Foundation. Team Doctor, David Saxton and Athletic Trainer Wade Sundbye will be speaking. To purchase a seat at the seminar, which includes a ticket to the Barons’ game, contact Brian Thompson at 405-232-4625 ext. 1118. $4 from every ticket sold to this event will benefit the McBride Foundation.

The 24th is Seats for Soldiers Night where companies and individuals may purchase tickets for the game on March 24, to be donated to local military service men and women.

The Barons have already received over 500 tickets to be distributed to the military for that evening. Please call 405-232-GOAL and ask to speak with Brian Thompson or Chris Halley for more information on the program. Deadline to purchase Seats for Soldiers is Tuesday, March 20.
