T-BIRDS AND PARTNERS TO RAISE FUNDS FOR LAKEWOOD POLICE INDEPENDENT GUILD THROUGH ONLINE TICKETS SALES TO DECEMBER 11 GAME
Kent, December 3, 2009 - The Seattle Thunderbirds have partnered with the City of Kent, the Kent Police Department, ShoWare Center and radio stations Q-Country 102.9 FM (KNBQ) and Funky Monkey 104.9 FM (KFNK) to raise funds for the Lakewood Police Independent Guild.
The T-Birds will donate 100% of ticket revenue from online ticket sales between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Wednesday, December 9, to the game against the Tri- City Americans on Friday, December 11, to the Guild.
“We are looking forward to supporting the Guild and encourage our fans to let family and friends know about this worthwhile fundraising event,” said T-Birds owner and general manager Russ Farwell. “We hope it is an overwhelming success and we sell out the ShoWare Center, raising as much money as possible for the family of these fallen heroes.”
“We could not undertake this fundraiser without the help of the City of Kent, the Kent Police Department, ShoWare Center and Q-Country and the Funky Monkey. We were all completely shocked by what happened in Lakewood and hope to help as best we can.”
Q-Country and Funky Monkey will be providing air time to run commercials promoting this fundraiser.
“Words cannot express our grief for the families and friends of the four fallen Lakewood Police Officers,” said Shellie Hart, Program Director for KNBQ and KFNK. “Hopefully our actions will as we reach out to our audiences for their thoughts, prayers and support.”
The T-Birds will have a very identifiable graphic at the top of their home page on Wednesday, December 9, that fans will be able to click on to purchase tickets to the game against the Americans.
