It's on…

Wild Wings face Red Wings Alumni

Mayor William R. Wild, along with his team of Westland Wild Wings, are once again getting ready to lace up their skates to challenge the Detroit Red Wing Alumni in the 11th Annual Hockey Night in Westland charity event.
The event, being presented by North Brothers Ford, will take to the ice at 7 p.m. Friday, March 20 at the Mike Modano Ice Arena located at 6210 N. Wildwood St. in Westland. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.  At 6 p.m. the Westland Hockey Association Mini-Mites and Mites will take the ice to show off their skills. The Red Wing Alumni and the Westland Wild Wings charity game will follow at 7 p.m.
This event has evolved into one of the most anticipated events in the community. Tickets for the event are $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 6 to 12. Children 5 and younger are admitted at no cost with an adult.

“Hockey Night in Westland is the city's premier annual sporting event,” commented Wild.  “While we battle it out on the ice, the true winners of the event are the youth hockey and figure skating groups as well as members of the community who utilize the arena.  Proceeds from the event have helped to fund improvement projects at Modano, which is looking better than ever.” 
Tickets are available for purchase at Westland City Hall, the Mike Modano Ice Arena, North Brothers Ford, 33300 Ford Road, and online at
Seating is limited so early ticket purchase is recommended by organizers.
