St. Charles, MO, November 7, 2016 – The St. Louis Ambush are teaming up with Responder Rescue to help the first responders who help us every day. Responder Rescue provides assistance to any area first responders who have been injured, become ill or suffered a traumatic situation after all other resources have been exhausted.

The Ambush will donate 15% of all tickets sold between November 7 and 17, for the November 19 home opener, when buyers mention Responder Rescue when ordering. To order, call the Ambush at 636-477-6363 and be sure to mention Responder Rescue. Responder Rescue will also be at the game with their Responder Rescue Ambulance for those who would like to donate at the game.

In addition to the proceeds from ticket sales, an additional donation will be made by Ambush team owners. Co-owner Shelly Clark said, “We are proud to be able to offer support to the dedicated men and women who are there for us, on a daily basis, when we need them most.”

Each day, thousands of police officers, firefighters, and EMS workers strive to keep us safe. While we often see these men and women as daily heroes, they still face injury, illness and traumatic events; on and off duty. Unfortunately, there is only so much their insurance companies and the departments they work for can do to help. Responder Rescue, a 501(c)(3) organization, was established in 2009 by a St. Louis metro area fire Captain who saw this unmet need. As a result, Responder Rescue's goal is to help provide the additional financial and emotional assistance to these men and women.

The Ambush kick off their 2016-17 MASL season on the road when they face the cross-state and Central Division rival Kansas City Comets Sunday, November 13 at 5:05 p.m. The home opener is Saturday, November 19, when the Ambush host the Tacoma Stars at 7:05 p.m. at the Family Arena. Group, season and single-game tickets are now on sale for all ten home games.
