The Clark County Commission will formally declare Tuesday, May 15, as “Las Vegas Wranglers Day” in honor of the team’s Kelly Cup Finals playoff run and work in the local community.
The team will receive the proclamation on the Tuesday morning of Game 2 against the Florida Everblades in the 2012 Kelly Cup Finals. The two teams will open the best-of-seven series Monday, May 14, at 7:05 p.m.
“It’s a humbling honor for any entity like ours to be embraced by its community,” said Wranglers President Billy Johnson. “It’s our pleasure to add to the cultural fabric of Clark County, and to be here for the locals to enjoy hockey season after hockey season.”
In addition to naming Tuesday as “Wranglers Day,” the Clark County Commission will recognize the team’s efforts with ongoing community service projects. This season alone, the Wranglers have given almost $400,000 in charitable contributions to local organizations including St. Baldrick’s Foundation, Goodwill of Southern Nevada and the Public Education Foundation. The Wranglers also support youth hockey development in Las Vegas through the Junior Wranglers.
Playoff tickets are on sale now and can be purchased through the Wranglers front office at (702) 471-PUCK.
