The Sarnia Sting are set to host their annual Black & White Game – in support of the United Way on Wednesday, August 30, 2017
The Annual Black & White game in support of the United Way is set for Wednesday, August 30 – 7:05 PM. As always, the game will feature a number of current Sting players and Sting prospects vying for a roster spot. In partnership with Lambton Ford and Blackburn Radio, the Sarnia Sting will be hosting a tailgate party in the parking lot from 5:00 – 7:00 PM prior to the game.
This event will feature the Blackburn Radio summer patrol, interactive games for the kids, and a licensed beer gardens for fans over the age of 19. Hot dogs and Burgers will be available for purchase in the parking lot.
Rob Ravensberg of Lambton Ford explains his company’s expanded role this year, “Lambton Ford is proud to partner once again with the Sarnia Sting to support our local chapter of the United Way. Prior to this year’s Black & White game we will host a Drive 4UR Community test drive event. Ford of Canada and Ford dealerships across the country have been supporting local communities with the Drive 4UR program since 2010. This program has enabled us to give back to the communities we live, play and work in.”
Essentially, Ford will donate $20 for each person who takes a test drive in one of their vehicles on the day of the event. Pre-registration for this event can be done by clicking on the following link – FORD DRIVE 4UR COMMUNITY
If you cannot be in attendance on August 30, we ask that you still fill out the pre-registration form. Ford will still make the $20 donation on your behalf, even though you were unable to participate. Test-drives can be done between the hours of 4:00 – 8:00 PM on the 30th. The maximum donation for this event is $5,000.
United Way, Lambton Ford and the Sarnia Sting are setting a fundraising target of $10,000 for this year’s event.
Executive Director, Dave Brown comments on behalf of the United Way regarding the partnership, “We are excited to be back on board with Sarnia Sting for the 2017 season, our long-standing partnership has contributed over $27,000 to the community in the past 12 years.”
“We can’t think of a better way to end our summer then spending it with our family and friends at the rink. Every donation will go directly into the 2017 fundraising campaign which benefits youth, families and seniors in Sarnia Lambton.”
“We are proud of our history with the Sarnia Sting organization; each person that has come out to a Black and White game in the past 12 years has made an impact on this community. The donations that we receive will help fund over 30 programs and services in Sarnia-Lambton that have a direct impact on the lives of youth, families and seniors.”
