Help The T-Birds Write A Check For Over $50,000 To The Lakewood Police Independent Guild


100% of all online ticket revenue from 9am to 9pm on Wednesday, December 9, for the game against Tri-City Americans, on Friday, December 11, will go to support the children of slain officers

The Seattle Thunderbirds are encouraging their fans to purchase tickets to the game against the Tri-City Americans, on Friday, December 11, on the T-Birds website on Wednesday, December 9, between 9am and 9pm.

The T-Birds will be donating 100% of all ticket revenue during this 12-hour window to the Lakewood Police Independent Guild to support the children of the four slain Lakewood Police Officers.

"Based on current seat availability it is possible that we could write a check to the Guild for over $50,000," said T-Birds Director of Public & Media Relations Ian Henry. "We hope to write as big a check as possible to the Lakewood Police Independent Guild and we can only do that if our fans share this news with their friend and family and help us sell out the ShoWare Center on Friday.”
Their will be a Lakewood Police banner at the top of the T-Birds website that fans will click on Wednesday to purchase tickets to the game on Friday.

The T-Birds have partnered with the City of Kent, the Kent Police Department, ShoWare Center and radio stations Q-Country 102.9 FM (KNBQ) and Funky Monkey 104.9 FM (KFNK) to make this fundraiser a reality.

To be a part of this you MUST purchase a ticket online at the T-Birds website and please share this with everyone.

If they sell out the tickets then how about this idea; purchase a T-Bird ticket and tell them to give it to the families of those who lost their loved ones. Buy them a couple of hours of distraction from their pain and grief.


2 games on the schedule for Tuesday evening starting with Chris Doyle (2008 5th) and his Prince Edward Island Rockets getting shut out by the Moncton Wildcats 3-0. This was a quiet game for the most part by both teams as there were only a total of 6 minors called the entire game.

Doyle was a -1 on the night taking a team high 5 shots including 3 solid scoring chances. Doyle also won his only 2 faceoffs in this contest.

On the other hand Luke Walker (Traverse City) was not around to see his Portland Winterhawks earn a 4-3 overtime win over the Everett Silvertips on the road. Walker had to leave the game late in the 3rd period and did not return after taking what appeared to be an accidental high stick to the face from Everett defender Radko Gudas.

Walker was left bloody but nothing was called on the play so we will give Gudas the benefit of the doubt here mainly because Winterhawk play by play announcer Andy Kemper did. Kemper is a straight shooter not a homer so had it been any other way he would have said so.

Gregg Drinnan of Taking Note quoted Winterhawk coach Mike Johnson as calling Walker's gash; "very bad, one of the worst I’ve seen.” It is about a 3 hour drive from Everett back to Portland so we really feel bad for Walker and the pain he is suffering.

As for the game, Walker did not score and was a -1 prior to his injury.
