 CMS Night at the Q

Back by popular demand is CMS NIGHT AT THE Q.  Click HERE and complete the form if you are interested in seeing the Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Chicago Bulls on Saturday, January 25, tip-off at 8:00 pm.  In addition to the CAVS game, you will also receive a ticket to a Lake Erie Monsters game on Sunday, February 9, puck drops at 1:00 pm. DOUBLE BONUS, if you are one of the first 15 families to order, your child will be selected to participate in a "high five tunnel" as the NBA players run onto the court during the CAVS game!!!!  The first 2000 kids to the Monster’s game will receive an admission day pass to Castaway Bay. Two price points for tickets, $55 for the lower bowl and $29 for the upper level. DEADLINE to ORDER IS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20.  This would make a great gift during the holiday season.


We will limit the high five tunnel to the first 15 families that return the order form.  Please identify what tickets, $29 (cross out $55 and write $29) or $55 you are purchasing on the order form and provide your FlashSeats account email.
