Firebirds Are Teaming Up With The Old Newsboys of Flint
The Flint Firebirds are once again helping The Old Newsboys of Flint at Friday night's game with Ugly Sweater Night.
After the game bid on ‘Ugly Sweater’ jerseys worn by the Firebirds, all money raised will be given to The Old Newsboys of Flint to help underprivileged children in the community.
Then at Saturday game it's the Teddy Bear Toss and Joey Kocur Night. Fans are asked to bring new or gently used teddy bears or stuffed animals to the game and after the Firebirds score their first goal, fans can launch them onto the ice. The stuffed animals will be collected and donated to the Ennis Center for Children, Hurley Medical Center, Michigan State Police and the Whaley Children’s Center. Last year, the Firebirds donated more than 1,000 stuffed animals to the local charities. Fans are asked to bring and throw their stuffed animals in bags so that they stay dry for the kids.
