“We want to turn the United Way, Black & White Game into a kick-off celebration of the new ownership of the Sarnia Sting. We’re really building off the last two games of last season, when the building was just rocking. We’d like to see a really good crowd out there on September 2nd to say ‘Welcome to Sarnia,’” comments Mayor Mike Bradley.
Admission is free of charge for the annual Black and White game with proceeds from the 50/50 draw, Jersey raffle, and lineup sheet sales going back to the United Way.
Executive Director, Dave Brown comments on behalf of the United Way regarding the partnership, “The Sarnia Sting Hockey Club has been a long time, valued partner of the United Way of Sarnia-Lambton. We are very grateful to the previous ownership group, and look forward to working with new ownership to grow our relationship even more.”
Sarnia Sting co-owner, Derian Hatcher is excited about their [his and David’s] first full season in Sarnia. “I think it’s definitely a great way to kick things off. The Annual Black & White game is one of the most long standing traditions of the Sarnia Sting and both, David and myself are looking forward to continuing that tradition.”
