Tempe Parents for the Gifted


February 23, 2008   

Tempe Parents for the Gifted is hosting a family event with the Phoenix RoadRunners on “leap day” – Feb. 29 – to support gifted children and their education, at the same time meeting other families with similar interests, can purchase discounted tickets to see the Phoenix RoadRunners face off against the Alaska Aces at 7 p.m. on Friday, February 29, at US Airways Center.

All lower-level seats are close to action on the ice. TPG has reserved a block of seats for this game, so families with gifted children will be sitting together, giving both parents and children an opportunity to meet others in the community while enjoying the game.

The regular RoadRunners game ticket price is $19.95, but tickets to this special event are only $15.00 per ticket, and the RoadRunners will donate a portion of the proceeds to TPG.

The deadline to purchase tickets is Wednesday, February 27, 2008. To purchase tickets, call Chelsey Hoffman, at the Phoenix RoadRunners and Phoenix Suns office, at (602) 379-7868, or buy them online through Ticketmaster, at:

Tickets will be held at the “Will Call” window for pick-up the day of the game.
