Stars to Host H-E-B Food Drive Night on WednesdayDec 1, 2014
CEDAR PARK, Texas – The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, announced today the details of their fourth annual H-E-B Food Drive Night to benefit the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas this Wednesday, Dec. 3, prior to the team’s game against the Utica Comets at 7:30 p.m.
The Stars’ H-E-B Food Drive will begin at 10 a.m. in the East Lobby of Cedar Park Center and will run until the opening puck drop at 7:30 p.m. Fans who donate eight or more non-perishable food items will receive a voucher for a free ticket to Wednesday’s game and the fan who makes the single largest food donation will win a Texas Stars suite night.
Every fan who donates will be entered to win prizes, including autographed Stars memorabilia. Once the arena doors open to fans at 6:30 p.m., food will be collected at each of the three Cedar Park Center entrances until game time.
Since its inception during the 2011-12 season, the Texas Stars Annual H-E-B Food Drive has brought in over 4,500 items weighing over 2.5 tons -- the equivalent of more than 4,300 meals donated to the Capital Area Food Bank.
While Wednesday’s game is the official H-E-B Food Drive Night, the Stars also collect food throughout the season on their H-E-B Nights, which occur on every weekday game of the season (Monday-Thursday). Fans can bring any H-E-B brand non-perishable food item to the Cedar Park Center Box Office to save $5 off their ticket purchase.
In addition to the food drive, Wednesday’s game will also be a Winning Wednesday and a Raising Cane’s Challenge for fans in attendance. If the Stars win, everyone attending receives a free ticket to the game on Dec. 10, and if the Stars score three or more goals , fans can show their ticket stubs for Buy One, Get One free combos at any Raising Cane’s location.
The Texas Stars entered the 2014-15 season as the AHL’s defending Calder Cup Champions. Single-game tickets and season ticket packages for the 2014-15 campaign are on sale now. For more information, call (512) GO-STARS (467-8277) or visit TexasStarsHockey.com.
