Kay Wright, System Analyst for Caesars Atlantic City, will be kicking off the game with the national anthem. A long-time resident of Atlantic City, Wright has been with the company for 25 years and her singing talents were first discovered by Caesars in 2008 when she won first place in the company talent show. Over the years she has performed with choirs at notable venues such as the House of Blues Atlantic City, the former Sands Casino Hotel, and New York City’s own Carnegie Hall.
Fans will also have the opportunity to take advantage of special deals during the game such as dollar hot dogs. Lucky ticket holders may also go home with prizes from our t-shirt toss or be called out as a lucky seat winner and win a free overnight stay at Caesars Atlantic City. Intermission contests will give fans even more chances to win big. At the end of the first period, 103.7 WMGM’s Matt Murray will host 103.7 WMGM Rocks Rapid Fire where two contestants will be randomly selected to participate in a shootout on the ice. The contestant who can place the most pucks in the net within thirty seconds will win a gift card to one of our great, local restaurants. Matt Murray will be taking entries for this contest before the start of the game from 2 to 4 p.m. during a live remote from Boardwalk Hall. At the end of the second period, the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey will host a Chuck-A-Puck contest. During the game, fans will be able to stop by the United Way booth to purchase foam pucks which they will be able to “chuck” onto the ice for a chance to win a cash prize. A portion of the proceeds
from this contest will benefit the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey.
If that isn’t enough, New Jersey Devils alumnus Grant Marshall will be on hand to meet and greet with fans before the game and during the first period. Marshall played professionally for 14 seasons, including four-plus years for the Devils’ organization from 2003-08.
