Sports Center of Connecticut to host annual Heroes Day

On Sunday, Sept.11, Sports Center of Connecticut, 784 River Road, Shelton, will host its annual Hereos Day, sponsored by Economy Fuel.

Heroes Day celebrates everyday heroes — military, police, fire and first responders. They and their families will enjoy the use of the Sports Center, featuring mini-golf, bowling, batting cages (weather permitting), golf range, ice skating (from 1-3 p.m.), GameZone and target paintball.  Economy Fuel will be on site during the event with giveaways, raffles and more. They will also be kicking off their Heat for Heroes program, which was created as a way to thank local veterans and help keep them warm all winter long.  The winner of this program will receive up to $1,500 of home heating oil and will be announced at the end of the year.

“The Sports Center is so proud to host this annual event and give back to those who protect us and keep us safe each and every day.  We are especially excited to be teaming up with Economy Fuel this year to make this event even bigger. We encourage all first responders and their families to stop by and have a day on us.” said Liz Sousa, manager at The Sports Center.
