Students with autism go Into the Wild at Xcel Energy Center
Associated Bank, AuSM, and the Minnesota Wild brought students, teachers, and caregivers from Spero Academy and Lionsgate Academy "Into the Wild" today at the Xcel Energy Center. Participants were able to experience what it's like to attend a MN Wild game, including claiming tickets at the will call window, walking through security, and finding seats in the arena. They also watched the MN Wild practice, had the opportunity to shoot a puck and learn about check writing and personal finance in the Associated Bank Power Play Zone, took in the view from the press box on the top floor, and wrote and drew about what makes them awesome. Some even met Wild Coach Bruce Boudreau and were interviewed by WCCO-TV | CBS Minnesota, KSTP-TV, and FOX 9 News! Thank you, Associated Bank and MN Wild, for this amazing experience!
