Bears Announce 2017-18 Promotional Schedule

The puck drops on the Hershey Bears historic 80th Anniversary Season soon, and the club has added to the excitement with the announcement of the 2017-18 promotional schedule. The schedule features exclusive giveaway items, five Hersheypark Pass Nights, and jersey auctions to raise money for great causes.

Additionally, the club has announced details regarding individual ticket sales for the 2017-18 season. Tickets to Hershey’s Saturday, Sept. 30 preseason game at Giant Center versus Wilkes-Barre/Scranton are on sale now. The game will feature general admission seating and all tickets are just $12. Additionally, individual tickets for all regular season home games go on sale on Monday, Sept. 25 at 10 a.m. Tickets are available at the Giant Center Box Office, by calling (717) 508-BEAR, or online via Ticketmaster.

When it comes to the promotional schedule, fans will want to mark their calendars for several key nights throughout the season. Annual favorites that help support great causes highlight the promotional schedule, including Mixed-Up Productions Pink The Rink Night on Sunday, Oct. 29, to help fight breast cancer. The WGAL & CommunityAid Teddy Bear Toss Night will take place on Sunday, Dec. 3 versus Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. All fans are encouraged to help kids in need by bringing a new teddy bear or stuffed animal to throw on the ice after Hershey’s first goal. Last year, Hershey collected a team record 20,662 bears, and they’ll look to break the record again this season.

The Bears are slated to wear specialty jerseys that will be auctioned off post-game four times during 2017-18. Saturday, Nov. 11 is United Brotherhood of Carpenters Local 431 American Flag Night, and Hometown Heroes Night. The Bears will wear a USA themed jersey that evening. STAR WARS™ Night will be Sunday, Jan. 7, featuring a specialty jersey that is out of this world. Hershey will also wear a vintage inspired jersey at the 2018 Capital BlueCross Outdoor Classic on Saturday, Jan. 20. The club will sport a St. Patrick’s Day Jersey on Saturday, Mar. 17.

The Bears have listened to fan feedback, and by popular demand, have added three nights that fans won’t want to miss:

To help celebrate the holidays, the club will host Penn State Health Ornament Night for the first 5,000 fans on Saturday, Dec. 9. A bobblehead giveaway also returns for 2017-18. Wednesday, Jan. 24, will be UGI Garrett Mitchell Bobblehead Night, featuring a commemorative keepsake of Hershey’s captain for the first 5,000 fans. Additionally, the club will host Jersey Off Our Back Night in the regular season finale on Sunday, Apr. 15. All fans will have a chance to win a game-worn jersey right off the back of a Hershey player.

Popular Hersheypark Pass Nights return to the promotional schedule on Oct. 29, Nov. 15, Dec. 13, Jan. 10, and at the 2018 Capital BlueCross Outdoor Classic on Saturday, January 20. All fans in attendance will receive a one-day admission to Hersheypark valid through July 31, 2018.
