The Seattle Thunderbirds take on the Everett Silvertips on Saturday, February 26 at Climate Pledge Arena. The matchup is the first WHL action under the roof since 2008.
Immediately following the Thunderbirds game will be the 23rd annual Hockey Challenge to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Washington and Alaska (RMHC) Celebrity All-Star game. The Hockey Challenge began in 1998, when Microsoft employees took an in-house hockey rivalry public to raise money for RMHC.
As keeping with tradition, a portion of the proceeds from the Silvertips vs Thunderbirds game will also be donated to the Ronald McDonald House. The 2020 Hockey Challenge raised $200,000 for the RMHC, making the grand total $6.6 million over the course of 22 years.
Climate Pledge Arena requires all guests, ages 12 and over, to provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative test, taken in the 72 hours before the event. More details are available here.
