Flyers Wives Preview Carnival, Help PAWS

In anticipation of Sunday’s (January 26) Flyers Wives Fight for Lives Carnival, several Flyers Wives will visit the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in Philadelphia on Wednesday, january 22 to assist with daily maintenance for animals currently at the shelter. PAWS is an organization that hits close to home with the Flyers as defenseman Nick Grossmann and his girlfriend, Rita, serve as a foster family for PAWS animals.

PAWS is a long-standing beneficiary of Flyers Charities and a non-profit organization dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals. PAWS is the city’s largest no-kill shelter and operates a high-volume , low-cost clinic serving pet owners and rescue organization that lack access to affordable basic veterinary care. For more information on PAWS, visitPhillyPaws.org.

The Flyers Wives Carnival, the largest fundraiser of the year for Comcast-Spectacor Charities, is coming to the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday, January 26 at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are on-sale now by calling 1-800-298-4200, visitingFlyersCarnival.com or in person at the Wells Fargo Center Box Office. 

Since its inception Comcast-Spectacor Charities, which encompasses Flyers Charities and Global Spectrum Charities, has contributed over $25 million to charity. The funds raised from the annual Flyers Wives Carnival and other initiatives of Comcast-Spectacor Charities help support hundreds of non-profit organizations throughout the Greater Philadelphia Region, including the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation. Comcast-Spectacor Charities prides itself on helping support not just one but a multitude of worthy non-profit organizations that benefit everything from important health care initiatives such as heart health and stroke and cancer awareness to various youth recreation programs and plenty more.
