|Community Mission Statement|
SCHOOLS: Over the years, our Ticket Sales Fund Raising Program has enabled local Schools to raise more than $440,000 for programs and materials that help keep them successful. Our “Hat Trick for Reading” Program has given thousands of Elementary and Middle School-aged children an outlet to not only learn, but to have fun and enjoy a game night with us at the arena. The “In the Arena” DECA Program has enabled hundreds of High School students to participate in our game night operations and promotions. The underlying aspect of these programs, besides providing fun for all, is to help educate our young people.
GLADIATORS FOUNDATION FOR KIDS: Since its inception, the Gladiators charitable arm has provided more than $200,000 in grants to local non-profits, schools, and other organizations that help make the lives of children better. Thanks largely in part to the on-going generosity of our fans, who have given so much over the years, we are able to fund the foundation through our annual Jersey and Ornament Auctions, Fed by the Gladiators, and other vehicles that raise money.
COMMUNITY EVENTS: Maximus, our Players, Coaching Staff, and Front Office have been able to visit local Civic and Business Organizations, Parades and Festivals, and Schools. These activities give us a “face outside of the arena,” and in turn, help to educate our local Community about Gladiators Hockey.
DONATIONS: is your group or organization planning a fund raising event? Would you like to help generate some publicity for your event? The Gladiators Community Relations department will be happy to consider helping you with your mission. Call us & ask how.
THEME NIGHTS: Several annual Theme Nights are scheduled again this season. We help to bring the local Business Community together with events like “Girls Gone Gladiators” and our annual “Pink in the Rink” weekend.
These are all things that the Gladiators Organization takes very serious. We enjoy being involved, and plan on staying involved.
