Philadelphia Wings Alternate Captain Jeff Ratcliffe will personally donate 30 tickets to every home game to enable underprivileged children to sit in his 'Rat Pack section' and enjoy a Wings indoor lacrosse game at the First Union Center.

The Don Guanella School, a boarding school for special needs children located in Springfield, PA, is the first selected group to sit in the 'Rat Pack,' when they attend the Wings game against the New Jersey Storm on Saturday, February 22, at 1 p.m. at the First Union Center. For information on how to obtain Jeff Ratcliffe's 'Rat Pack' for your group contact the Wings PR office at 215-389-9743.

'I am very excited that underprivileged children will get to see and experience a Wings game,' said Ratcliffe, 'I think this will also help introduce the sport of lacrosse to new audiences.'

'This program is a great idea and our students are very excited to attend a Wings game,' said Don Guanella's activities director, Robert Neely.

Jeff 'The Rat' Ratcliffe, a three-year Wings veteran, hails from Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. The 6'1'', 205-pound forward has recorded 20 points (12 goals, 8 assists) in seven games for the Wings this season.

The Wings will have four home games left after they host the New Jersey Storm on Saturday, February 22 at 1 p.m., including the Columbus Landsharks on Saturday, March 1 at 8 p.m.; the New York Saints on Saturday, March 8 at 1 p.m.; the Buffalo Bandits on Saturday, March 15 at 8 p.m.; and the Calgary Roughnecks on Saturday, March 22 at 8 p.m.

Also on Saturday, February 22 the first 5,000 children 14 and under will receive a collectable bobblehead of 13-year veteran goaltender Dallas Eliuk, the most decorated goaltender in indoor lacrosse history, and clearly the fan's choice for most popular player over the team's 17-year history.
