The Fargo Force have announced their promotional schedule for the 2017-18 season. Fans will see several familiar promotions, along with some new.

The annual Hometown Heroes game focused on raising money for local first responder groups and organizations looking for funds to purchase lifesaving equipment will be on Saturday, Jan. 20. Organizations interested in applying to receive funds can do so at fargoforce.com. Also back this year on the fundraising side will be Cully’s Kids Night hosted by the Cullen Children’s Foundation on Saturday, December 16. Both games will feature a specialty jersey that will be auctioned off post-game with 100% of all proceeds being donated.

New to this season will be the “Dash 4 Cash” game catered to all local teachers within a 30-mile radius to the Fargo-Moorhead area. Selected teachers will dash for cash during the first intermission where $5,000 in dollar bills will be scattered out onto a section of carpet and they will grab the cash and stash on their person. The teachers will keep all money collected for their classroom and/or their school. Teachers wanting to participate will need to submit an essay into the Fargo Force on why they should “dash 4 cash”. More information can be found at fargoforce.com.

With four Thursday games on the docket for the season, the front office staff has deemed those nights “thirsty Thursdays”. Fans can enjoy $2 pounders courtesy of D-S Beverages and Bergseth Bros. on their respective nights and students (high school and college) will be able to get a ticket with a valid student ID for just $5 at the Scheels Arena box office.
