CEDAR RAPIDS — The Cedar Rapids RoughRiders are offering free tickets to all military veterans for their home game Saturday night against the Madison Capitals at the Cedar Rapids Ice Arena.

Opening faceoff is at 7 p.m.

“The RoughRiders organization, like all American businesses and citizens, owe such a debt of gratitude to all of those who have served,” said RoughRiders Co-President Doug Miller. “We truly do appreciate the sacrifices made by these men and women as well as their families, and want them to enjoy an evening of hockey on us.”

To receive their free ticket, veterans can call (319) 247-0340 or stop by the Ice Arena box office during business hours. Or they can wait until Saturday night to get their ticket.

A veterans or active military ID card will be needed.

The RoughRiders also will wear special military jerseys for the game, some of which will be part of a special silent auction. Also during the game, fans may purchase a Budweiser product for a veteran at any Ice Arena concession stand by telling the server they would like to “Buy A Vet A Bud.”

Veterans may redeem their Budweiser product by showing their ID.
