Change In Customer Appreciation Night Guests

by In The Game Trading Cards - Saturday, May 03, 2014

There has been a change in the Special Guest lineup for the In The Game Customer Appreciation Night Party tomorrow night.

We were informed  yesterday that Sport Kings' guest, Pete Rose is unable to attend. At a routine doctor's appointment, Pete was told that due to a heart ailment (an irregular heart beat) that he should not fly for the next ten days.

Pete graciously agreed to sign the two pieces that were to be given to each VIP Guest and return them to us in time for the party. We appreciate that. Pete also agreed to do a public appearance for Sport Kings in the future.

A new guest has been added to the guest list, Paul Coffey will be at the In The Game Customer Appreciation Party to meet our VIPs and sign autographs for them.

In addition, Sport Kings is working diligently to bring in a surprise guest in time for the party.

Again, we apologize for this change but it was unavoidable.
