We want to send your favourite couple to the Best Seats in the House

Nominations are now open for February's Best Seats in the House tickets

We have some hot tickets to give away to three upcoming Soo Greyhounds games.

Each month SooToday partners with our friends at Mio's Furniture Fashions to give two tickets to the Best Seats in the House to deserving community members. 

The recipients of the tickets will enjoy a Soo Greyhounds game in comfort and style, seated in two leather La-Z-Boy recliners from Mio's Furniture Fashions, with a prime view of the on-ice action.

In honour of Valentine's Day, we would like to send a few special love birds to the February games. 

If you know a couple who exemplifies what true love is, tell us their love story!

Let us know about the extraordinary couple by filling out this quick form. Nominations close at noon on Friday, Jan. 25.

We will be choosing three couples from the nominations to send for a night out together at a February Soo Greyhounds game, where they will sit in the Best Seats in the House.

One couple will be selected for each of the following games: Feb. 6, Feb. 9, and Feb. 10.

Our call for nominations for January's seats were for special seniors in our community. We were overwhelmed with the response, receiving hundreds of nominations for remarkable seniors in our city. 

Some of the people who sat in the Best Seats in the House last month include:

Richard LaCrosse, a longtime Greyhounds fan who was a proud season ticket holder for many years. He has faced a number of health struggles, and has come a long way in recent years. A night out to celebrate was just what the doctor ordered for Richard!

Robert Bonell, a 94-year-old World War II veteran. Robert is a huge Greyhounds fan and was a season ticket holder for many years, until mobility became an obstacle to attending games. It was a pleasure to send Robert and his family to see a game from the Best Seats in the House. 

Brian and Bev Dunn, who nominators say are two of the most selfless people you could have the pleasure of meeting. Brian and Bev are passionate about giving back to our community and do so regularly at local shelters and through Christmas Cheer. They perform random acts of kindness for friends and strangers alike, and despite their own health issues, they are the first to help when someone is in need. 

Adrian "Doc" Burns, a 93-year-old World War II veteran. He is incredibly community-minded, volunteering throughout the city and singing for the elderly at retirement homes. He never misses a Soo Greyhounds game; he either watches it on TV or listens to it on the radio. Doc is always putting a smile on everyone’s face, and it was fantastic to see a smile put on his by giving him tickets to the Best Seats in the House.
