It began last week as Vice President-General Manager Rick Matchett and play-by-play broadcaster Denis J. Puska spoke to the Tulia Rotary Club and later the Dumas Noon Lions Club. Later Captain Matt Nehls, who has been at each of the team’s Community Service Events this season, led a group of players to attend Heartis Center to chat with the seniors, and then Coronado Elementary School. At the school, the players congratulated the students on their achievements with the writing contests.
Bulls players also helped out with the arrival of the Girl Scout Cookies at the area office, where they unloaded the boxes and brought them out to the vehicles.
The busy stretch concluded with another visit to Snack-Pak-4-Kids where players acted as the heavy lifters by bringing supplies over to those volunteers who were busy packing bags.
The Amarillo Bulls will be working with Yellow City Comic Con and the Children’s Miracle Network for the 2nd annual Star Wars Night next Saturday, Jan. 21 at the Budweiser Bull Pen in the Amarillo Civic Center. That night the concourse will be covered with vendors and Star Wars enthusiasts prior to the Bulls game versus the Corpus Christi IceRays at 7 pm. The Bulls will also wear special Star Wars jerseys and a live auction takes place immediately after the game with proceeds to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network.
Tickets for that game can be purchased at the Bulls Office located at 301 South Polk, Civic Center Box Office and all Panhandle Ticket locations including United Supermarkets or by calling 806-242-1122.
Meanwhile, the Amarillo Bulls hit the road for two games this Thursday and Friday versus the Corpus Christi IceRays at American Bank Center. Fans can tune into the action live on CBS Sports Radio 1440, online at www.amarillobulls.com and on PPV with Fast Hockey beginning with the Wayland Baptist University Warm Up Show 20 minutes before the puck is dropped.
