Wednesday is last day to pick up a raffle ticket

Rockford, Ill.- Time is running out for Rockford IceHogs fans to get a chance at winning a customized Harley-Davidson motorcycle.  The IceHogs and Kegel Harley-Davidson/Buell are raffling a 2008 Harley-Davidson FXD Dyna Super Glide motorcycle customized for the ultimate IceHogs fan!|

The raffle will take place on Friday, April 11 when the IceHogs take on the Chicago Wolves at the Rockford MetroCentre.  Fans can still purchase raffle tickets, however, at Wednesday’s against the Peoria Rivermen.

Tickets are one for $25, three for $50 or seven for $100.  The tickets can be purchased at the First Step Mortgage Fan Information Booth at the MetroCentre.  All proceeds from the raffle will go to the IceHogs Charitable Foundation.  Ticket sales on Wednesday will be cut off with 5:00 left to play in the second period.

The final drawing for the three keys for the Harley will be drawn during the second intermission on Wednesday.  Overall, there will be 12 keys drawn, and the fan whose key starts the Harley will win it at Friday’s game against Chicago.   

All raffle tickets sold will go back into the drawing box and participants will receive an opportunity for other great prizes.  The prizes include two (2) Allegiant Air round trip tickets, (2) 20-pack season tickets for the IceHogs 2008-09 season, two (2) playoff tickets for all 2007-08 IceHogs playoff games.

There have been nine fans awarded keys for their chance at the customized Harley already.  They include Kelly Cummings, Joe Hesano. Stephen Leombruni, Sal Rushiti, Clint Cole, Nick Downs, Michael Houselog, John Shank and Dee Rutkowski.
