Potsdam Chamber Hockey Night Feb. 13

Monday 1 February, 2016
It is time once again to gather support for the Potsdam Chamber, cheer on the Clarkson Golden Knights Men's Hockey team, and plan a FUN night out in Potsdam. The Potsdam Chamber is selling tickets to the Saturday, February 13 hockey game between Clarkson and Quinnipiac. “This is an annual chamber fundraiser,” explained Executive Director Marylee Ballou, “the chamber appreciates the generous support of our chamber members and the assistance from Clarkson to make this event possible. For every $13 ticket, the chamber keeps $10,” Ballou added. There are some perks to purchasing tickets for this game from the Potsdam Chamber. “One out of ten people in a chamber seat will win a prize donated by chamber businesses. This is based on the chamber selling 200 tickets, of course.” Two people in chamber seats will also qualify for participation in some intermission games on the ice. This year the chamber has added a Pregame in Potsdam Event prior to the game that will involve fourteen locations in Potsdam. To participate in the pregame event, individuals will need to purchase a punch card from the Potsdam Chamber. Punch cards are $10 per person, but only $5 per person if also purchased with chamber hockey tickets. The pre-game event runs from 3- 6 pm on February 13 and thirteen locations will offer Pregame Punch card holders a FREE sample item (drink or food). There are also two bonus offerings on the card as well. “The specific item offered at each location is up to the business and will be a surprise to participants,” Ballou stated, “We did ask locations to offer a signature item or something they wished to highlight.” You can also turn in your pregame card at the chamber's table at Cheel before the game or at the chamber office by 6 pm to be entered to win $50 in Potsdam Chamber Gift Certificates. Each person will receive one entry per punch on his/her card. Hockey tickets and punch cards can be purchased at the chamber office, 24 Market Street, Mon.-Fri. 9:30 am- 4:30 pm. Preferred payment is cash or check, but will process debit/credit cards if needed.
