CHEVRON TO BRING 750 EMPLOYEES AND THEIR FAMILIES TO THE NEW MEXICO ICE WOLVES VS. ODESSA JACKALOPES GAME
Friendly Wager Between Chevron Operations in New Mexico and Texas Leads to Wager With $5,000 Donation to Either UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center in New Mexico or Boys & Girls Club of the Permian Basin in Texas Depending on Which Team Wins
The New Mexico Ice Wolves Visit the Odessa Jackalopes at Ector County Coliseum in Odessa, TX This Friday, February 9, 2024 at 7:15pm CT
(Albuquerque, NM) Wednesday, February 7, 2024 – The New Mexico Ice Wolves® today announced a special event for the team’s upcoming away game versus the Odessa Jackalopes. The competition will be fierce on the ice — and also in the stands — when the Odessa Jackalopes battle the New Mexico Ice Wolves at Ector County Coliseum on Friday night at 7:15pm CT.
“The entire New Mexico Ice Wolves team is thrilled and honored to have the added incentive to play for the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center on Friday and we thank Chevron for this tremendous opportunity,” said Phil Fox, Head Coach of the New Mexico Ice Wolves.
Chevron, a sponsor of the Jackalopes, is bringing more than 750 employees and Chevron family members to the battle between teams from the North American Hockey League’s South Division.
It’s a fitting game for Chevron employees to attend, given the company’s operations span West Texas and New Mexico. And that fact has resulted in a wager between Chevron operations from both states that will raise the stakes of Friday’s game.
If the Jackalopes win, Chevron will donate $5,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of the Permian Basin, which is based in Odessa and Midland. If the Ice Wolves win, Chevron will donate $5,000 to the University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center through the University of New Mexico Foundation in Albuquerque.
In the end, of course, everyone wins, as the runner up’s organization will receive $2,500 from Chevron.
