First Responders Appreciation Night - Hockey Game Tickets Now Available

GLENS FALLS — On Saturday April 2, 2022, the Adirondack Thunder (ECHL Affiliate of the New Jersey Devils) will be holding their First Responders Appreciation Night at the Cool Inwsuring Arena as they plan to host the Marine Mariners (ECHL Affiliate of the Boston Bruins) in a 7 p.m. game. 

Prior to the Thunder and Mariners game, the Saratoga County Minutemen hockey tea, comprised of players who represent various public safety organizations throughout Saratoga County, such as the Saratoga Springs Fire Department, Saratoga Springs Police Department, Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police, and New York State Park Police amongst other, will be taking to the ice for the charity against the Old Colony Police & Fire Hockey Club from Pembrook, MA. The First Responder Game will be played at the Cool Insuring Arena with a game time of 1 p.m. 

During the First Responder Game, donations will be collected in an effort to support the Saratoga Springs Firefighters Community Fund. The Community Fund is the biggest means in which the Saratoga Springs Firefighters IAFF Local 343 can give back to the community in ways outside of 911 emergency responses. The Community Fund provides funding for youth athletics for both in and out of school, provides funding for youth organizations that are not involved in athletics within the Saratoga Springs community, and has the ability to support those situations that occur in which an individual or family needs help in ways outside of calling 911. 

The tickets for the April 2 games can be purchased through the Adirondack Thunder using SeatGeek. Tickets purchased through SeatGeek are good for entrance with both games, and using the code “FIRST” people who purchase tickets will be able to purchases at a discounted rate. For larger groups, please contact the Adirondack Thunder business office and speak with Sean Driscoll.
