Park Cities residents can help support the University Park Public Library by attending a Dallas Stars game later this month.
The Dallas Stars will be playing the Vancouver Canucks at 2 p.m. Feb. 26, and 40 percent of the price of tickets purchased on www.DallasStars.com/library will be donated to the University Park Public when the special offer code "library" is entered.
The idea to share ticket sales with the UP Library was spearheaded by John Higgins, the Dallas Stars director of group and suite sales, according to a news release from the UP Library. Higgins was looking for a way to give back to the University Park community and contacted the city about sharing ticket sales for several games. City of University Park officials decided that the library would be the "perfect beneficiary" of the offer.
"The Dallas Stars are proud to support local organizations like Friends of the UP Public Library, and we're excited that University Park residents can raise funds for the Library while enjoying a Stars game," Higgins said, according to the news release. "Libraries are a fundamental cornerstone of the community and we look forward to seeing the new Library in action."
This is the third and last time this opportunity will be offered this hockey season. The money raised by this special offer will be used by the Library to purchase new books.
Tickets to the game cost $25 for the Mezzanine Level and $70 for the Plaza Level and can be purchased until noon on the day of the game or until the available tickets are completely sold.
