Global Spectrum, management for the Comcast Arena at Everett, is kicking off this year’s giving season with record breaking numbers. Kids’ Night Out and Pink the Rink were record breaking successes.
This is only the beginning for a season of giving here at Comcast Arena with Tilted Thunder Rail Birds next on the books. The Tilted Thunder Rail Birds are hosting a Harvest Throw-Down Sunday November 20 with Northwest Harvest. All guests that bring a non-perishable food item out to the Arena on Sunday receive 50% off their admission to the event.
The Silvertips fans generated a record breaking $78,000 for the Providence Foundation at their Pink the Rink night this year. Followed by Global Spectrum’s Kid’s Night Out Program that sent over 750 local Snohomish youth to Disney on Ice.
“I cannot tell you how important the Kid’s Night Out program has been to our kids and their families. Most of the children we serve are from the EHA low income housing for the City of Everett and otherwise would not have the means to attend these events. For them to have the opportunity to go to Disney on Ice with their families is a huge deal for them as all of their family’s money is spent on necessities. And sometimes even these basic needs are not met….I can definitely tell you that you are making a difference in the life of a child,” Jennie Oshie, Director, Everett Boys & GirlsClub.
The giving season has just begun with several upcoming charity events just around the corner. The Washington Stealth have partnered with four charity organizations for the 2012 season and the Everett Silvertips have the annual toy drive starting up on December 1, 2011.
