The game will be played by teams consisting of officers from the Wilmington Police Department and the Philadelphia Police Department. Tickets are $5 at the door. Spectators can also purchase raffle tickets for chances to win prizes including luxury box tickets to the Blue Rocks, gift baskets, and gift certificates to local restaurants.

The first 100 children through the door will receive a hockey puck to compete in a puck toss competition. The winner will receive a Trek mountain bike.

Come out for an evening of family fun to support this worthy cause.
