Wichita, KS (August 22nd) - The Wichita Thunder, ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Edmonton Oilers, AHL's Bakersfield Condors and powered by Toyota, are excited to partner with the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce to help celebrate with #ILOVEWICHITA Night on Saturday, January 26th when the Thunder takes on the Idaho Steelheads.
"The Thunder had an incredibly successful #ILoveWichita event last year and they've inspired other area sporting teams to host similar events," commented Angie Prather, Vice President of Marketing and Communications Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce. "They've been a real leader among the various athletic teams in promoting civic pride. We're very appreciative of the support of their loyal fan base and their enthusiastic staff. Exciting sporting events hosted by the Thunder generate jobs, attract visitors and provide entertainment options."
The team will be wearing a special Wichita city flag-themed jersey that night and will be auctioned off after the game. Fans will get a chance to vote for their favorite design on social media. There will be special discounts to fans who wear items promoting city pride and the city flag. The jersey that the team will wear this year will be unveiled at a later date.
"I had so much fun spreading Wichita pride with my flag jersey at last year's game," said Mayor Longwell. "I'm so thankful that the Thunder is spreading community love again this year and continuing to bring a first rate hockey experience to our city."
