“As we prepare for our 25th season here at ARM & HAMMER Park, we wanted to continue to provide an opportunity for families to share in the family fun atmosphere of a Thunder game,” said Thunder GM/COO Jeff Hurley. “I thank the Children’s Home Society of New Jersey and all of our area non-profit partners for the great work they do and we’re thrilled to give back to our community this holiday season.”
