Thanks to the following corporate sponsors, the first 200 kids, accompanied by an adult, to the Colts semifinal game on Saturday evening and the first 200 kids to the championship game on Sunday at 1pm will receive a free ticket.
The tickets have been purchased for the children by the following companies and individuals:
Terry Landon and Jamie Cameron, Re/Max Cornwall (100 tickets)
Darlene and Bob Donaher, John Gordon Construction (100)
Claude and Colette Bissonette Oxy-Arc International, (100)
Andre Pommier, Pommier Jewellers (20)
Jack Haines, Micro-Age Computers (80)
Kirk Tallman, Cornwall Truck Centre (40)
These companies were responding to Mayor Kilger's request to help raise the roof and push the Colts forward to the national championship.
A special area in the lobby will be clearly marked to hand out the free tickets and mom and dad can buy theirs at the same location.
The Colts play the semi final Saturday at 7pm and we want everyone to come out and bring noise makers, make signs and bring a boatload of energy to help propel the Colts into Sunday's final being broadcast on TSN at 1pm. The Ottawa Senators' Lyndon Slewidge will sing the national anthem.
Single game seat sales are as follows: adults are $14 for semi-finals and $15 for the final. Seniors and students are $12 for semi-finals and $13 for the final. Tickets for children 12 and under are only $5. You can pick up your tickets at the civic complex box office or by visiting www.admission.ca.
