The Florida Everblades hockey team has partnered with Wonder Gardens to help raise funds for the Bonita Springs attraction at the Everblades game against the Orlando Solar Bears at 7 p.m. Feb. 11 at Hertz Arena.
Wonder Gardens supporters will receive a $6 discount on the price of premium level seats, and Wonder Gardens will receive $17 for each $30 ticket purchased at tinyrul.com/everblades. A pregame tailgate with bounce houses and live music will be outside Hertz arena from 5 to 7 p.m.
“The Everblades, like the Wonder Gardens, are important drivers of tourism for Southwest Florida, so it is great to be able to support each other,” said Neil Anderson, Wonder Gardens executive director. “We grateful for the community support as we raise money for repairs to our structures damaged by Hurricane Ian.”
The Wonder Gardens does not receive taxpayer funding or support. Improvements, maintenance, staff and animal care are paid for by admissions, memberships, giftshop sales, fundraisers and donations.
