TAMPA BAY — The Tampa Bay Lighting will host their fifth annual Pride Night, on Tuesday, March 29 when they host the Hurricanes at the AMALIE Arena.
In conjunction with the National Hockey League and You Can Play, the Lightning will dedicate the game to celebrate inclusion of everyone in the sport.
The Lightning will also have numerous promotions throughout the game to highlight Pride Night, including the 50/50 Raffle, presented by Moffitt Cancer Center, the proceeds of which will go to designated local non-profits within the Tampa Bay LGBTQ+ community. Fans in the Tampa Bay area can purchase 50/50 raffle tickets starting at 10:30 a.m. and through the end of the second intermission by visiting www.bolts5050.com.
With a Pride Night Ticket, you will receive reserved seating, Pride Night t-shirt, early access to the Arena through a private entrance, and enjoy pre-game Pride celebration on the Budweiser Biergarten. A portion of proceeds will directly benefit local LGBTQ+ charities.
"The Tampa Bay Lightning are warriors of inclusion on and off the ice." said Justice Gennari, President & CEO of Tampa Bay LGBT Chamber. "They continue to raise the bar for Pride Night, with their players, staff and fans. We look forward to what they have in store of us this year."
The Bolts will once again use pride taped sticks. The sticks will be put up for auction in-game and online. Fans can also purchase pride tape at the Community Corner outside of section 120.
