WILKES-BARRE – The SMG-managed Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza, Wilkes-Barre Township, along with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, are once again proud to honor local military personnel and first responders throughout the upcoming season by donating the usage of an arena luxury suite for those that served their country and community.
Last season, Mohegan Sun Arena and the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins donated nearly 450 tickets as part of the “Salute to Service” Suite promotion. The venue’s “Salute to Service” Suite is decorated in Penguins military and first responder jerseys, and each recipient is recognized during the game.
While Arena and Penguins staff members are currently working with local media and community partners for nominations for this award, the general public is also being asked to submit nominations on the Mohegan Sun Arena’s website at www.mohegansunarenapa.com or by clicking this link.
Randomly chosen, each recipient will receive 12 tickets to the suite for a Penguins game along with three VIP parking passes and a complimentary snack package.
In addition, all active and retired military and first responders including police, firefighters and EMT’s will continue to receive 25% off select concessions items at permanent SMG/SAVOR managed concessions stands by showing their ID at all Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins games, as well as for concerts and family shows.
The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins are offering special ticket pricing for active military by showing their card at the NBT Bank box office at Mohegan Sun Arena. Active military can get Red Zone tickets for $22 and Gold or Blue Zone seats for $12. Individual game tickets for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins regular season are on sale now at the NBT Bank box office at Mohegan sun Arena, the Penguins Team Store, www.Ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.
