Testimonials from Bring the Thunder winners

The Lightning are an amazing organization. Their support for benefit programs and the local community are a tribute to your organization's mission. We were excited to be at the game and love supporting a winning organization both on the ice and off.  --Michael T.

I was told they were good seats, but it blew my mind when I actually sat down in them. My friend I took has been to a couple Lightning games in the past, much higher up, and he couldn't believe the difference in the experience down by the glass and practically sitting with the players themselves. I'd never been to a hockey game before, but all the people I know who have, told me it was the best sport to watch in person. Now I understand what they were talking about, especially being so close to the action! It was something I don't expect to forget. --Elliot A. 

I can tell you Jake won't forget his first experience at a Lightning game. He high fived the players as they came out of the tunnel and even got a puck thrown to him from a Lightning player. The shirts and award with thunder bug was very fun for him. He will definitely be coming back to see them again. --Jake A. 

Hudson had a BLAST at his First game. The seats were fantastic, it was thrilling to be so close to the action and players. To top it off, the game went into overtime with a shootout win making the experience even more memorable. My son has already worn his new lightning shirt three times, it's now his favorite!  --Hudson S. 

As invited guests of the Lightning, we really enjoyed the game and the salute to our soldiers on November 16th. Bobbi is on her way to becoming a hardcore Bolts fan, and wears her lightning shirt with pride. The bring the Thunder program was nice and easy to navigate. The thing that hooked Bobbi is everything the Lightning does for the local community. From the salute to our military and the community hero's recognition, to going off ice collecting food for the needy and letting kids meet their heroes.  --Bobbi S.

Thanks so much for the awesome tickets! My husband and I had so much fun! We had dinner at the buses downstairs, which was decent food. The seats were so great and gave us a whole other perspective on what the players do during the game. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be going to more games in the future. --Todd W.
