Next Friday, the Scheels Arena will host the 2nd Annual Pucks N’Paws Night, a fundraiser for local animal shelters and rescues sponsored by dogIDs. Ice hockey teams Fargo Force and Tri-City Storm will compete in a game where the ticket sales will go towards helping animals.
Doors open at 6:05 PM and the event itself begins at 7:05 PM. Depending on the seats and whether they’re bought in advance or at the door, tickets range from $9.95 to $27.95.
In addition to the game, patrons can enjoy a lapdog race held on the ice during the first intermission. If anyone wishes to enter their dog for the race, they must buy two human tickets and one dog ticket, and fill out a registration form and submit it with a photo of the dog. Forms can be mailed, emailed, or faxed. There are 30 available spots.
Local country and classic rock musician Dan Brekke will be performing before the game and during intermission. An accomplished musician, Brekke has played several local venues, radio shows, and TV morning programs, and even played alongside Brad Paisley at the 2014 WE Fest in Detroit Lakes.
