Stick to Reading

Stick to Reading

Boomer and the Thunderbirds are big fans of area school students who have a passion for reading through the Stick to Reading program. Students who complete their school's reading "goals" for the season are rewarded with a free ticket to a Thunderbirds game, with the purchase of a parent/guardian ticket!

Teddy Bear Toss

Teddy Bear Toss

Last year, the first ever Teddy Bear Toss in Thunderbirds history brought 2,793 stuffed animals onto the ice in celebration of the game's first goal! The bears collected on the ice that night went to underprivileged children throughout the Pioneer Valley for the holiday season, including stops at Square One, the YMCA, Ronald McDonald House, and more!

Bookmark your calendars now - the 2017 Teddy Bear Toss is set for Sat., Dec. 9 vs. Bridgeport!


Pink in the Rink

The Springfield Thunderbirds partnered with Baystate Health/Health New England and the Rays of Hope Foundation to put together an unforgettable evening last March. In front of a sold-out crowd, the T-Birds honored breast cancer survivors in a pregame ceremony on the pink ice surface, the first time in Springfield hockey history such a display occurred. 

Thanks to the sellout crowd and postgame jersey auction, the T-Birds raised over $10,000 for the Rays of Hope Foundation.
