SOUTHAVEN, Miss. -- Through a new partnership with DeSoto County Schools for 2013-14, hockey is helping schools in Northwest Mississippi.

Horn Lake High School raised $930 on November 26 through the Mississippi RiverKings and DeSoto County Schools' fundraising partnership. Students purchased tickets for $10 through the RiverKings and $5 of every ticket purchased went back to Horn Lake High School.

"This fundraiser helps to maintain that sense of community that the RiverKings promote," said Horn Lake High School Principal Andy Orr. "Not only that, but it also shows the kids and parents in DeSoto County another way they can get behind an organization like the RiverKings."

To participate in the DeSoto County Schools' fundraiser with the RiverKings, download the coupon form on any DeSoto County Schools' website, or go to riverkings.com/desotocountyschools. Once it's filled out, bring the coupon to the box office for a red-level ticket. The fundraiser runs the duration of the 2013-14 SPHL season.

The RiverKings hit the road this weekend for a pair of road games in Knoxville against the Ice Bears on Friday and Saturday. Puck drop for both games is at 6:35 p.m. with all the action airing live on Sports 56 and 87.7FM. Be sure to catch all the action at Old Style BBQ, the Official Away Game Watch Party Headquarters of the RiverKings for Friday and Saturday night's games.

The RiverKings return to the Landers Center on Friday, December 27 against the Pensacola Ice Flyers at 7:05 p.m. For ticket information, be sure to check out riverkings.com or ticketmaster.com.
