The Minnesota Wild's "Wild for a Day" program, presented by Jersey Mike's Subs, recognizes young hockey players that demonstrate commitment, hard work and passion for the game and their community both on and off the ice. Selected candidates will receive an in-person invitation from Nordy, a visit to a Wild morning skate, autographs from select Wild players, game tickets and in-arena recognition.
The Minnesota Wild is honored to recognize a different local charity each month during the regular season. Our Charity of the Month Program provides awareness and exposure for the chosen non-profit over the course of one month. The charity is featured on Wild.com, in Wild social media posts, receives a feature piece in the monthly game magazine and is highlighted during one Wild home game with access to fans via a concourse table and a custom video piece featured during an intermission.
The Wild About Reading program, presented by St. Paul Eye Clinic, promotes the importance of reading and increases student literacy by encouraging kids to read inside and outside of the classroom. K-6 elementary school teachers are provided weekly downloadable material throughout the month of April.
The Minnesota Wild receives several hundred requests for memorabilia, player appearances, and speaking engagements from organizations each month. We wish it were possible to honor all of them since most are very worthwhile causes. Please know that all requests are given serious consideration. Due to the high volume of requests we receive, the following guidelines must be followed to assure fairness.
Season Ticket Holders may donate their tickets online through My Wild Account. For more information or if you have questions about this process, please reach out to your account representative who is happy to provide further support.
The State of Hockey Anthem debuted with the start of the 2000-2001 inaugural Wild season. In the State of Hockey, where the tradition of our game runs deep, these lyrics (accompanied by energetic, Celtic-flavored music) symbolized all of the elements of Minnesota's rich hockey heritage.
