SOUTHAVEN, Miss. – The Mississippi RiverKings ice hockey team is partnering with Belhaven University to help “Pack the House” to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®.

On Friday, Jan. 17, prices for red, gold and blue level tickets to the RiverKings vs. the Louisiana IceGators game will be reduced by $5. For each ticket sold, $3 will go to help fund the lifesaving research and treatments at St. Jude, in Memphis, Tenn. Book a group of 15 or more and buyers receive an additional $2 off each ticket.

No patient ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, food and housing, so that they may focus on what’s most important—helping their child live. That is possible only because of events such as the RiverKings vs. the IceGators, where fans and friends of St. Jude show their support through ticket sales and other promotions.

A public skate and Elvis jersey auction will follow the game, which begins at 7:05 p.m.

Group tickets start at just $4 and are available through the RiverKings front office by calling 662-342-1755. Single game tickets start at $5 and are available through the Landers Center Box Office or online at ticketmaster.com
