BILOXI, Miss. – The Mississippi Sea Wolves announced that they raised more than $100,000 for charitable organizations in 2007-08.
The biggest fundraiser of the season was “Pink in the Rink” which raised almost $22,000 for the Mississippi Sea Wolves Special Needs Patient Fund at Memorial Hospital in Gulfport, Miss. The fund provides proper breast cancer screening and treatment to women who cannot afford it.
Returning after missing two years in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Mississippi had its largest attendance since 2001-02 with 3,753 per game, an increase of 9.6 percent from 2004-05 when the Sea Wolves last played.
The Sea Wolves are the ECHL affiliate of the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League and the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League.
