Support YouthQuest by Saving at Seat at the March 2nd Flint Firebirds GameFebruary 24, 2016

The Dort Federal Event Center can comfortably seat 4,400 hockey enthusiasts. And if all goes well, it will be a full house on March 2.

As part of a fundraising partnership with the Flint Firebirds, more than 500 YouthQuest students have been invited to attend the Flint Firebirds v. Saginaw Spirit game next month. What's more, the afterschool enrichment program will receive a portion of the proceeds for every ticket sold $15 or higher using the promotional coupon YQUEST.

You can help by purchasing a ticket and spreading the word, said Rhetta Hunyady, Vice President of Education & Training at the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce, which administers the afterschool enrichment program.

“This is a great way to show your support for the students in the program,” Hunyady said. “We’re hoping to see a lot of familiar faces at the arena next Wednesday.”
