HOLIDAY CELEBRATION WEEKEND DECEMBER 20 & 21 FEATURES HAM SHOOT AND TEDDY BEAR TOSS
By Josh Evans, OKC Barons
The Oklahoma City Barons will be in a festive mood for the two games before the Christmas holiday on December 20 and 21.
December 20 is Barons Night with $2 draft beer and $1 hot dogs from 6-8 p.m. Following the game, fans can come to the ice to shoot a puck from center ice into an empty net. Those who are successful will receive a coupon from the Barons and Schwab Meats for a holiday ham.
December 21 is the annual Teddy Bear Toss Night. The Barons are looking for new and gently used stuffed animals for donation to EMSA. When the Barons score their first goal against the Texas Stars on December 21, the fans will be asked to throw their stuffed animals toward the ice. The stuffed animals will be collected and donated to EMSA for use in breaking the ice with children who have been involved in a traumatic incident.
Both games will feature your opportunity to own a festive piece of holiday wear decorated by the Barons players. For the third straight season, Barons players will decorate small Christmas trees in a manner that is appealing to them. Some of the more interesting designs from seasons past have included an iPod and iTunes gift cards, trees dedicated to fishing and to golf. The decorated trees will be on display on the upper concourse near The Edge Team Store where fans can place bids on the trees. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Barons Buddies Program. click here to read more
The game on December 21 is also a Drive Away Every Saturday game. One lucky fan will win a 2013 Honda CR-Z. All you have to do is attend the game.
Faceoff for both games is 7 p.m. at the Cox Convention Center. A holiday pack is a great gift for the hockey fan in your life. For just $99, you can purchase six undated flex tickets and a 64 oz. Barons Mega Mug. Call the Barons’ front office at 405-232-4625 for more information.
