Food Drive, $1 Dogs/$1 Beer When Mallards Meet Denver Friday
Military Appreciation Night Saturday
MOLINE, Ill. (November 6, 2013) –The Quad City Mallards will hold a food drive to benefit Christian Care Domestic Violence Shelter and Rescue Mission, welcome fans to another $1 Dog/$1 Beer Friday presented by 97X and host Military Appreciation Night this weekend when the Mallards play a pair of games against the Denver Cutthroats at the iWireless Center.
The Mallards will meet the Cutthroats at 7:05 p.m. on Friday night and on Saturday night. Fans who donate canned food items at the iWireless Center will receive coupons good $1 off the price of a walk-up ticket to Friday’s game for each item donated (up to a maximum of $3 off per ticket). Canned food items will be donated to Christian Care Domestic Violence Shelter and Rescue Mission in Rock Island. Christian Care was founded in 1916 to serve the least, the last, and the lost. It has continued to serve the community for 96 years and currently operate two facilities—a domestic violence shelter for abused women and children and a rescue mission for homeless men.
Friday is the season’s second $1 Dog/$1 Beer Night presented by 97X. $1 hot dogs and $1 beers will be available at iWireless Center concession stands during each of the Mallards’ 11 Friday night home games this season. Friday’s first intermission entertainment, will, courtesy of 97X, follow the hot dog-themed spirit of the evening.
The Mallards have also partnered with Metro, which provides earlier service on the Route 59 between Augustana College and downtown Moline during Friday home games this season. The Route 59 will make one trip from campus to downtown Moline prior to the game (arriving at 5th Avenue and 15th Street at 6:30 p.m.) and will resume service from downtown to campus every 30 minutes from 10:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. Regular Metro fares are just $1 one-way or $2 round-trip. As part of Metro’s unlimited ride program, Augustana riders can use their Augustana ID as their fare. Visit www.gogreenmetro.com or www.facebook.com/53and59 for more information.
The Mallards will recognize those who have served in the armed forces with Military Appreciation Night this Saturday when the team plays its last home game before Veterans’ Day. All current and former members of the military and their families can purchase tickets to that game for just $5.
The Mallards would like to thank the numerous local businesses and season ticket holders who have already purchased Military Night tickets that have been donated to current and former military personnel and their families.
