The Bridgeport Sound Tigers will be the first team in the American Hockey League to host a night for the You Can Play Project, at their Feb. 23 game against the Manchester Monarchs. The game starts at 7 p.m. and there will be a panel discussion with You Can Play founder Patrick Burke at 5:30 p.m.
Tickets can be bought via Ticketmaster using the promo code “YOUCAN," where $5 of every ticket purchased will go to the You Can Play Project.
The Sound Tigers are also partnering with local LGBT organizations in the event. Organizations that are interested in participating in the You Can Play Night can call the Sound Tigers at (203) 334-GOAL.
Bridgeport, Conn., is about 60 miles from New York City and with the game on a Saturday, it would be a great event for those in the area to attend. Teams that sponsor these kinds of events need our support and You Can Play is a great project to rally around.
