HENDERSON, Nev.The Henderson Libraries Foundation has partnered with the Las Vegas Wranglers hockey team in a fundraiser to benefit the Henderson Libraries’ six locations.

The Foundation is selling advance tickets to the Wranglers vs. Alaska Aces game, which will take place at 7:05 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Orleans Arena, 4500 W. Tropicana Ave. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased from the Henderson Libraries Foundation by calling Matt Hortt or Trudy Casey at 702-492-6580 or emailing Matt at mhortt@hdpl.org through Wednesday, Feb. 1. A percentage from each ticket will be awarded to the foundation, the nonprofit, fundraising organization that supports Henderson Libraries.

The Chuck-A-Puck Program allows fans to purchase pucks to throw onto the ice during the game’s intermission at each home game to win Wranglers prizes. The foundation will sell pucks for $2 each or six pucks for $10 at the game and will receive 30 percent of the night’s sales in addition to tickets purchased in advance.
