(HERSHEY, PA) — The BEARS are back at the barn for two big games this weekend. On Saturday, the San Antonio Rampage visit for a 7:00 PM face-off. It's "Capital BlueCross Night", and the first 5,000 fans receive a car magnet, courtesy of Capital BlueCross. Saturday is also "Wellness Night". Come and find out ways you can improve your health and lifestyle.
Finally, the Cancer Recovery Foundation will be collecting toys to donate to children living with cancer. Fans are encouraged to bring a new, unused toy to Saturday's game. They will be distributed by the Cancer Recovery Foundation to Penn State Hershey Medical Center, hospitals regionally, and throughout the United States. Toys can be dropped off at the booth outside Section 103.
Then on Sunday, the BEARS take on the Portland Pirates in a 5:00 PM puck drop for "Hometown Heroes Night." Individuals from the local law enforcement and volunteers will be on site. Show your appreciation by thanking them for all they do.
In celebration of Chocolate Covered February, fans will receive pieces of candy as they exit the game, compliments of The Hershey Company. The BEARS would like to thank the Hershey Company for graciously donating all the candy.
Fans should stick around after the game as a few players will be signing autographs for 45-minutes in the Club Lounge.
