T-Shirts, sock monkeys, Country Night and gym bags highlight March giveaways/promotions

Rockford, Ill. – While the Rockford IceHogs look to make their playoff push during March, fans will be treated to a variety of giveaways and promotions at the BMO Harris Bank Center for the upcoming month.

The first of the monthly giveaways kicks off on Friday, March 1 when the IceHogs host the Peoria Rivermen at 7:05 p.m. in an Illinois Lottery Cup contest. The first 1,500 fans to the game will receive glow-in-the-dark Hog Nation t-shirts, courtesy of Toyota. Rock 'n' roll icon and Rockford native, Rick Nielson, will also be on hand. As a part of Rick’s Picks night, the celebrity will drop the ceremonial first puck while Cheap Trick songs are played throughout the evening.

The following night when the Hogs take on the Milwaukee Admirals at 7:05 p.m., the first 1,500 fans through the turnstiles will go home with an IceHogs Sock Monkey sponsored by BMO Harris Bank. United Way of Rock River Valley and BMO Harris Bank have teamed up with the IceHogs and will also be hosting a sock drive. Every fan who brings a new pair of kid’s socks to the BMO Harris Bank Center during the weekend will receive a voucher good for a buy-one get-one free IceHogs ticket to select remaining home games.

After a weekend road trip, the Hogs return to action at the BMO on Friday, March 15 for Country Night sponsored by Q98.5 and Frito Lay, when they take on the Chicago Wolves at 7:05 p.m. Fans will be able to enjoy live music as Back Country Roads performs throughout the game, and for those who always wanted to test their bull riding skills, a mechanical bull will be on sight in the concourse. There will also be a contest for best cowboy/cowgirl outfit, where the best-dressed individual at the BMO will win a pair of tickets to a Chicago Blackhawks game.

On Wednesday, March 27, the Toronto Marlies come to town for their annual visit to Rockford, with a puck drop slated for 7:05 p.m. The game will be one of the two final Dollar Day offerings of the regular season, where beer, soda, hot dogs and companion tickets are just $1 each.

To wrap up the March giveaways, the IceHogs will welcome back the Oklahoma City Barons to the BMO Harris Bank Center on Saturday, March 30. With a game time slated for 7:05 p.m., IceHogs gym bags will be given away to the first 1,500 fans to the BMO courtesy of Peak Fitness.
