WHL: T-Birds: Cool Bird Bobblehead Night + Dictionaries!
He's a favorite among hockey fans, now the Seattle Thunderbirds are honoring mascot Cool Bird with his very own bobble head! The first 3,000 fans arriving at ShoWare Center for Friday night's match-up against the Portland Winterhawks will receive a free bobblehead, courtesy of Comcast. This is the team's first ever bobble head night, and we hear Cool Bird is extremely excited to be honored in this way! The puck drops at 7:35pm, so get there early!
The T-Birds are also proud to announce that fans helped raise $3,124 to buy dictionaries for area schools. They teamed up with the Rotary Club of Kent Afternoon to host the second-annual "Rotary Night with the Seattle Thunderbirds" on November 6, during the game against the Spokane Chiefs. The fundraiser benefits the Rotary Club's "Dictionary Program."
Twelve Rotary Clubs took part in the event, including: Kent Sunrise, Renton, Federal Way Sunrise, Federal Way Afternoon, Covington, Maple Valley, Magnolia, SeaTac, Seattle International, Sodo and Bellevue Overlake. Together, these clubs and the T-Birds provided more than 280 dictionaries to 3rd grade students in their respective school districts. The Seattle Thunderbirds say they're very proud to be associated with the event, and look forward to teaming up with fans to raise even more money for dictionaries next year!
