AMARILLO, TX – The Amarillo Bulls continue to very active in the Texas Panhandle participating in various community activities and giving time to help the less fortunate.
Two major events highlighted of what has been a busy week for the hockey team in the community.
The Bull Hockey For Health Program was front and center on Monday and Tuesday as players, Assistant Coach, Rocky Russo, and play-by-play broadcaster, Denis J. Puska, were at Lakeview Elementary School and then Bonham Middle School.
On Tuesday afternoon, Head Coach Dennis Williams, Assistant Coach Russo, and several players made a stop at Northwest Texas Children’s Hospital, where they visited children in the various wards and gave each of them a signed Bulls’ pennant.
In just three days, hockey returns to the Bull Pen in the Amarillo Center when the Bulls entertain the Texas Tornado in a huge first place showdown. The Tornado lead the Bulls by just three points for first place in the South Division.
The Bulls will be wearing their Christmas Jerseys and an auction follows immediately after the game with proceeds to benefit Amarillo Youth Hockey. Fans are also encouraged to bring a new or gently used Teddy Bear or Stuffed Animal to the game and after the Bulls score their first goal, throw the toys onto the ice. The toys will be collected and distributed to various charities across the Texas Panhandle. Santa Claus will also be making an appearance that night.
Tickets for this Friday’s game are available at all Panhandle Ticket Outlets including United Supermarkets, Civic Center Box Office or on line at www.amarillobulls.com.
