CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THE DISNEY WORLD TRIP

Beginning today, April 5, fans can begin entering to win the first of two grand prizes being given away on Fan Appreciation Night: a trip for two to Disney World, sponsored by AAA. Two winners will be randomly selected on Tuesday, April 23 and will each receive tickets to the Sabres-Islanders game on April 26. At the game, the two ticket-winners will participate in a contest to see who wins the trip to Disney World. To enter this contest, fans can sign up at Sabres.com.

The night’s other grand prize is a year’s supply of gas, being given away by NOCO to celebrate the company’s 80th anniversary. Two fans attending that night’s game will be randomly selected to participate in a contest that will decide the winner of the year’s supply of gas.

Two fan-favorite giveaways will also make their return to Fan Appreciation Night in 2013. Sabres players will again give away their game-worn jerseys to select season-ticket holders after the game in the “Jersey Off Our Back” promotion. Another returning favorite is the post-game balloon drop, in which 2,000 balloons will be dropped from the arena’s rafters after the game’s final buzzer. Five hundred of the balloons will contain prize slips that can be redeemed that night.

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THE 7TH MAN OF THE YEAR AWARD

The 7th Man of the Year contest will also return this year. Fans can submit nominations for the person they believe to be the Sabres’ best and most passionate fan in a 500-word essay that can be submitted on Sabres.com. A winner will be selected on April 23 and will receive two tickets to the game, the chance to watch warm-ups from the penalty box, VIP rope line passes, recognition during the game and a post-game jersey presentation from the fan’s favorite player.

A new component to this year’s Fan Appreciation Night is a chance for fans watching the Sabres broadcast on MSG to win prizes throughout the game. To participate in this contest, fans can scan a unique QR code that will be displayed on their TV screen during both intermissions and after the game. In addition to scanning the QR code, fans can enter to win by accessing a unique website URL that will be displayed with the QR code. Prizes for the broadcast portion of Fan Appreciation Night include a 40” TV from Stereo Advantage, an iPad Mini from AT&T and an autographed Steve Ott jersey.

Fans attending the game at First Niagara Center will be treated to a night full of special discounts and giveaways. A 50%-off sale at the Sabres Store will be available on all merchandise throughout the night. Additionally, fans can take advantage of family-friendly pricing on selected concessions items throughout the arena. Small popcorns, hot dogs and 16 oz. sodas will be available for $2 in addition to a $5 combo package that includes a souvenir 32 oz. soda and a hot dog.

Special handouts and giveaways, sponsored by Moe’s Southwest Grill, will also be passed out to fans as they enter and leave the arena for the night’s game.
