MEDFORD - On Friday night (Feb. 7), the Tufts University hockey team will host this semester's first Fan The Fire event with its game against Connecticut College at Valley Forum in Malden starting at 7 pm. The Jumbos will be playing in support of lung cancer treatment and prevention.
Fans are encouraged to wear white for a
"White Out" theme at the rink. The father of Andrew White, a junior
on the Jumbos, has been courageously battling lung cancer during
the past year. All of the proceeds from the night will be donated
in his honor.
The event will feature a raffle to win one of the special "White Out" jerseys that the Jumbos will be wearing for the occasion. Souvenir pucks will be sold and other ways to make donations will be available at the rink!
A fan bus to the game will leave from the Campus Center at 6:15 pm. Fans are again encouraged to wear white to the and be loud in support of the Jumbos and their cause. Possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages is prohibited on the buses. Students are also reminded that Tufts and the NCAA promote good sportsmanship. We request your cooperation by supporting the participants and officials in a positive manner.
All members of the Tufts community are invited to attend. Admission to Tufts Hockey games is free for students with their ID. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for non-Tufts students. For those traveling on their own, Valley Forum is located at 50 Holden Street in Malden.
On the ice, the Jumbos will be looking to earn some key
points in NESCAC action against Connecticut College. Both squads
are competing for a spot in the upcoming conference championship
Fan the Fire: Spirit, Sports, Service is a celebration of Jumbo pride and the dedication to active citizenship we all share at Tufts. We are now in our third year of Fan The Fire, with successful events every semester since Fall 2011. Visit the Fan The Fire website here!
As usual, free Fan The Fire t-shirts will be given out
at the game. Jumbo fans are encouraged to wear their WHITE Fan The
Fire shirts that they received at previous events.
