Making A Difference: Swarm Teams Up With Make-A-Wish

The Minnesota Swarm have announced a new charitable initiative to donate 50-percent of all new season ticket revenue — all purchases between Jan. 3 to Feb. 5 — to Make-A-Wish Minnesota. This special offer can be found online by visiting www.mnswarm.com/seasontickets or by calling 1-888-MN-SWARM.

“The Swarm organization has always taken great pride in giving back to our local community,” Swarm Co-Owner and President Andy Arlotta said. “We wanted to take that commitment to another level this season, and we’re very excited to partner with Make-A-Wish Minnesota to help grant the wishes of local children.”

“We are thrilled to be part of the Minnesota Swarm season ticket kickoff,” said Tom McKinney, CEO of Make-A-Wish Minnesota. “Their generous support will help make wishes come true throughout Minnesota for some very special children and their families.”

Close to 9,000 fans attended the Swarm’s home opener on Saturday, Jan. 3 at Ho-Chunk Nation Field at Xcel Energy Center. Minnesota has eight additional home games in 2015 and its next contest at Ho-Chunk Nation Field is on Friday, Feb. 6 against the Rochester Knighthawks for a 7:30 p.m. showdown. Known for their family friendly atmosphere and non-stop in-game entertainment, Swarm games have been named the “Best Arena Experience” in the NLL the past two years (via StadiumJourney.com).

Swarm prorated season tickets start as low as $19 per ticket, per game. Current season ticket packages include the Swarm’s remaining eight home games at Ho-Chunk Nation Field, plus the first home playoff game. Benefits to Swarm Season Ticket Holders include complimentary gifts, merchandise and parking discounts, VIP experiences, ticket exchange, bonus seats, and much more. 

Lower level season tickets can be purchased online by visiting www.mnswarm.com/seasontickets or by calling 1-888-MN-SWARM.

About Make-A-Wish Minnesota
Make-A-Wish Minnesota grants the wishes of Minnesota children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can have positive impacts on the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. With the help of generous donors and more than 700 Minnesota volunteers, Make-A-Wish Minnesota grants a wish somewhere in the state every 27 hours. It has granted more than 4,000 wishes since its inception in 1982. Visit Make-A-Wish Minnesota at mn.wish.org to learn more.
