The Tampa Bay Lightning will host ‘Go Green Night,’ presented by Waste Services of Florida and Proshred, to encourage recycling and environmental awareness on Monday, March 7 when they take on the Washington Capitals at 7 p.m. at the St. Pete Times Forum.
Fans who bring six plastic bottles and/or aluminum cans to be recycled by Waste Services of Florida or items including old Washington Capitals jerseys, hats or t-shirts to be shredded by Proshred will receive discounted tickets at a group rate, including $15 terrace corner seats, $30 terrace center seats or $50 plaza end seats. This special ticket incentive will be available on the west plaza prior to the game. All fans are encouraged to arrive to the game early, as the first 5,000 individuals in Lightning gear will receive a Lightning recyclable grocery bag presented by Waste Services of Florida.
Those who ride their bike to the game will receive one complimentary terrace level ticket to that night’s game versus the Capitals. City Bike Tampa will be on hand giving out free bike safety checks as well as complimentary minor adjustments to all fans’ bikes on the plaza. The bike parking area will be staffed throughout the game. The Friends of Clean City along with College Hunks Hauling Junk will also be present in the Forum West Lot through March 6 from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. for any fan wishing to bring an old car or boat battery to be recycled. Individuals who make a donation will receive a pair of tickets to an upcoming event at the St. Pete Times Forum.
Speedling Incorporated will also distribute approximately 2,500 geraniums to any guest that would like to take one home after the game. There will be a table on the concourse where fans can receive information on the Lightning’s green efforts and sign up as one of the organization’s Green Team volunteers.
The Lightning Foundation will also take part in the evening’s festivities, with the donation and special presentation of a bicycle to be used by a Tampa Police Department patrol officer in the Hyde Park neighborhood.
