The Cape Coral Hurricanes finish off their NPSL soccer season with a flurry of promotions including reduced ticket prices, drawings, giveaways, contests and even a fundraiser for a new playground for children living with autism at the Peace By Piece Learning Center in Fort Myers.
Half of the game's proceeds are destined to go to Peace By Peace. Game tickets are half price Saturday night when the Hurricanes play the Tampa Marauders in the final leg of the "Gulf Coast Cup" series between the rival neighbors.
The winner of the series gets a three-foot trophy to take home till next season. Saturday's game kicks off at 7 p.m. at Cape Coral High School.
"We were very happy to hear that the Hurricanes would be helping us raise funds for our new playground," said Tracey Demarest, the schools director of operations. "We've been wanting to build a safer and more stimulating playground for some time now. Hopefully, we'll be able to do that soon with help from kind organizations like the Hurricanes."
The Hurricanes gave away about a dozen prizes last weekend and will do the same this weekend.
"We want to end this season with some cool promotions that will hopefully get a lot of fans out to the park to enjoy some high quality soccer, while taking part in raising funds for the school," said team general manager J.P. Terrasi.
