Admirals Team Up With Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society on Friday
NORFOLK, Va. – The Norfolk Admirals will hold their fourth annual Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) Night on Friday night during the Admirals game against the St. John's IceCaps at Norfolk Scope Arena. The puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
"We are proud to partner with the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society for this annual event," said Admirals Vice President Joe Gregory. "They do fantastic work to support the men and women who serve in our armed forces. We are eager to do our part to support the NMCRS through fundraising and through increasing awareness of their programs. We hope our fans will learn more about the mission of the NMCRS and will also do their part to support their admirable programs."
A private, non-profit charitable organization, since 1904, the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society has existed solely to support the active and retired communities of the Naval Service. Located ashore and afloat at nearly 250 offices around the world, the Society is served by 3,500 dedicated, trained, and caring volunteers, supported by a small cadre of paid employees.
The mission of the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is to provide – in partnership with the Navy and Marine Corps – financial, educational, and other assistance to members of the Naval Service of the United States, their eligible family members and survivors, when in need; and to manage funds to administer these programs.
Last year, the NMCRS provided financial assistance in Hampton Roads of over $8.1 million involving over 18,000 cases. To donate, volunteer or find more information about the local Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, please contact Kathy Nelson, the Director of the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society in Norfolk, at Kathy.Nelson@nmcrs.org or (757) 322-1171. You may also find out more information at the NMCRS table on the Norfolk Scope concourse during Friday's game.
Fresh off a ten-and-a-half month deployment, representatives of the USS Bataan (LHD 5) will participate in Friday night's Admirals game. Captain Erik M. Ross, Commanding Officer of the USS Bataan, will participate in the ceremonial puck drop. Representatives of the Bataan will also serve as the color guard for the game and will sing the national anthem.
