Are you ready to roar?! The Columbus Lions are facing off against The Alabama Hammers in an indoor football game at the Columbus Civic Center on Saturday, May 18 at 7:30 P.M. This game is including many special events such as military appreciation, a tailgate party, pet adoptions and donations, Camp Joy donation collections, a 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad-Cab give-away, and Halftime Lotto Ball Mania.
In order to honor military members, active duty military will enjoy special priced seating, $10 for lower level seats and $5 for upper level seating. Also, the first 150 military members will get in for free.
Due to the rain forecast, the tailgate party has been moved inside the civic center. The gates will open at 6 P.M. Admission is free with the purchase of a game ticket for that night. The Damn Skippy Band will be playing on the field to welcome home the Third Brigade Infantry Division. Try your chance at a game of corn-hole toss in the lobby to win 2014 season tickets. In addition to all of that, concessions will only be $1 and drafts will be $2; those prices will only last during the tailgate party so don’t miss out!
Do you like adorable animals that have undying love for you? If so, don’t miss out on pet adoptions at this game. Members of the East Alabama Humane Society and Harris County Humane Society will have some animals in attendance that are available for adoption and they will also be accepting donations. Don’t pass on the chance to change an animal’s life!
The Lions are also teaming up with The Valley Rescue Mission by taking collections for this summer’s upcoming “Camp Joy.” Large bins will be placed in front of the Civic Center and fans are urged to donate the following items to underprivileged children: socks, shoes, girl’s one-piece swimsuits, t-shirts, towels, pillows, pillow cases, wash clothes, sheets, sleeping bags, toiletries, etc.
Active duty military members do you want a free 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad-Cab?! Well good news you can enter for a chance to win one! In association with Carl Gregory, during halftime the Lions will be giving away a 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad-Cab to an active military member. Sign-up registration forms will be placed in the front of the Civic Center and a drawing will take place during halftime.
