What do you get when you mix the Fresno Monsters, Star Wars and Fresno Police?
Their very own galactic empire, and the Selland Arena was turned into that very thing.
It was a fun night in downtown Fresno Saturday night during a Fresno Monster’s hockey game, with a twist.
It was Star Wars night, benefitting nonprofit Fresno United Neighborhoods. Players wore Star Wars themed jerseys which were auctioned off.
And fans who dressed up got discounted tickets, and the chance to compete in a costume contest out on the ice.
Fresno Police also participated in the event through Fresno Force Hockey, a volunteer community outreach program run by the Fresno Police Department and sponsored by the National Hockey League Players’ Association to introduce youth to hockey.
