Every February, the Toronto Marlies host a more excited and raucous crowd than usual. The reason? It's TDSB/TFSS Day with the Marlies!
Your students can join thousands of others to cheer on the Toronto Marlies as they take on the Grand Rapids Griffins at Ricoh Coliseum on Wednesday, February 4th, 2015. To ensure our students have the opportunity to enjoy all the excitement of professional hockey, the Marlies have once again arranged for a special 11:00 a.m. start time and reduced ticket prices. The event showcases our national sport and encourages our students to get involved in physical activities while raising funds for TDSB students in need.
The game is only part of the fun. Hundreds of prizes will be given away and Duke the Dog will entertain the audience and TDSB Superintendents will display their on ice marksmanship with the “Super’s All-Star Shoot Out”.
Past school-day games have been complete sell-outs and several schools had to be turned away.
Check out tfss.ca/tfssevents/marlies to find out how to register so that you don’t miss out this year!
A Great Deal!
Marlies tickets are just $15 (regular value up to $53). Plus, one free adult supervisor ticket will be provided for every 15 paid tickets.
