Mallards Meet Rapid City
$1 Dog/$1 Beer Night Presented by 97X Returns Friday
Donate to Student Hunger Drive for Free Youth Tickets Friday
MOLINE, Ill. (February 12, 2014) – The First 1,000 fans through the doors for this Saturday night’s 7:05 p.m. game between the Quad City Mallards and Rapid City Rush at the iWireless Center will receive free Terry Ruskowski bobblehead dolls.
The bobbleheads in the image of Ruskwoski- the Mallards’ coach and general manager- will be given away at what will be the second of the Mallards’ two home games in as many nights against Rapid City this weekend.
The Mallards will open the weekend Friday evening at 7:05 p.m. with the return of $1 Dog/$1 Beer Night presented by 97X. $1 hot dogs and $1 beers are available at iWireless Center concession stands during each of the Mallards’ 11 Friday night home games this season. First intermission entertainment will, courtesy of 97X, follow the hot dog-themed spirit of the evening.
The Student Hunger Drive helps feed area hungry while instilling a sense of volunteerism and community in area youth. Community leaders partner with local food banks and area schools to host a 6 week challenge every year. Currently, Student Hunger Drives are taking place in the Quad Cities, Charlotte, North Carolina and Northern Indiana. Students are the power behind this mission creating fun and innovative ways to raise money, collect food and feed the hungry.
Saturday night’s Ruskowski bobblehead giveaway honors the third winningest coach in Central Hockey League history. Now in his second season behind the Mallard bench, Ruskowski is not only a highly successful coach but was also a fine player. Ruskowski skated in 999 career games for six teams including the Chicago Blackhawks and is the only man in hockey history to have captained four different clubs.
Tickets for this weekend’s games or any remaining Mallards regular season home game can be purchased at the iWireless Center ticket office, Ticketmaster outlets, through ticketmaster.com or through Ticketmaster charge-by-phone toll free at 1-800-745-3000.
