Rampage to host Military Night
SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Rampage hockey team will honor the men and women who have served and continue to serve our country with their 9th annual Military Appreciation Night, sponsored by Hard Rock Café, this Saturday, March 3. The team will wear specially designed camouflage jerseys when they take on the Houston Aeros at 7 p.m. in the AT&T Center.
The Rampage are offering military service members, including veterans, a special $10 ticket for any available seat in the house when they show a valid military ID at the box office for the March 3 game.
The team will wear military-themed jerseys that will be auctioned off following the game at Express-News Headlines with proceeds benefiting Operation Comfort and the Rampage sled hockey team. Last year, the Rampage raised $44,000 to benefit San Antonio’s military community and have raised more than $180,000 over the past eight years.
Members of the Rampage sled hockey team will be recognized during a special pre-game ceremony. The San Antonio Rampage sled hockey team was the first team to form that consists of all wounded military service members. The team is run by Operation Comfort, a nonprofit organization that works with wounded service members coming from Iraq and Afghanistan, who are recovering at Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) in San Antonio. The team features three U.S. National sled hockey team members with Rico Roman, Josh Sweeney, and Jen Yung Lee. The team is led by team captain Chris Leverkuhn, who is a member of the U.S. National developmental sled hockey team.
Tickets start at $10 and can be purchased by calling a Rampage representative at 210-444-5554 or online at sarampage.com.
