The Philadelphia Flyers organization has a long-standing history of giving back to the community by hosting local non-profits throughout the season and offering the thrill of a Flyers game-day experience to those who might not otherwise be able to attend a game. In order to elevate the relationship with impactful non-profit groups, the club has formalized and expanded their efforts through the creation of the new Community Ticket Grant Program. Through this program, the Flyers will offer complimentary tickets to area non-profits to every Flyers home games at the Wells Fargo Center this season.
"We have formalized one of the Flyers most lasting traditions by setting aside an allotment of tickets to every home game for non-profits and their beneficiaries," said Valerie Camillo, President of Business Operations, Philadelphia Flyers and Wells Fargo Center. "This new initiative allows us to forge strong connections with our community partners, both new and existing, as well as to say thank you for their impactful contributions to Greater Philadelphia."
Last month, the Flyers piloted the program by providing tickets to their Warriors team, a non-profit affiliated with USA Hockey'sWarrior Hockey, dedicated to injured and disabled U.S. Military Veterans who have served their country
"The new ticket grant program was an incredible way to give back to a non-profit so close to our hearts and allow our team of veterans to enjoy the full Flyers game-day experience," said Brad Marsh, Director of Community Development, Philadelphia Flyers.
