The Moose will host over 14 promotional evenings this season for fans of all ages, including Ladies' Night, in support of CancerCare Manitoba's Breast Cancer Centre of Hope (Oct. 25), NASCAR Night (Nov. 29), "Beat the Winter Blues" Night (Dec. 12), as well as Fan Appreciation Night (Apr. 3). Fans will also be treated to such annual promotional nights as New Year's Eve when the Moose will take on the Calder Cup champion Chicago Wolves at 4:00 PM, or the Moose "Team Canada Salute" (Jan. 3) when the Moose will once again wear a special third jersey honoring Hockey Canada's accomplishments. On top of that, there will be the annual "Military Night" salute to Canada's Armed Forces on March 7 or Folklarama Night on March 27 when the Moose will welcome all of Manitoba's great cultures and heritages.
The celebrations kick-off on October 10th as the Moose take on the Hamilton Bulldogs in the 2008 home opener. Fans will receive a Moose Fridge Magnet Schedule as well as noise clackers. However, as a special prize, everyone at the game will be entered into a draw for one of three Hardcore Hockey bar fridges.
Other new giveaways include Moose Pink Ribbon hats, limited edition Mike Keane Bobbleheads, and a brand new Team Captain's Litograph.
Several returning promotions will also be featured throughout the team's schedule, including post-game autograph sessions, Smooch Cam and post-season award ceremonies.
