August 5th, 2013 -

The South Carolina Stingrays, in partnership with 103.5 FM WEZL, will present country-music star and Lowcountry native Darius Rucker with a custom Stingrays jersey and one-of-a-kind gift on Monday, August 12 between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. during the unveiling of Darius Rucker Boulevard at the North Charleston Coliseum. The Stingrays are also giving away two pairs of tickets to the exclusive event to current, renewed or new 2013-14 season ticket holders.

 

With the support of North Charleston Mayor R. Keith Summey and the North Charleston City Planning Commission, Coliseum Drive, the road that surrounds the North Charleston Coliseum and Performing Arts Center, will be renamed in honor of the award-winning musician.

Rucker, who attended Middleton High School in West Ashley and formed the world-famous rock band Hootie & the Blowfish while attending the University of South Carolina, is a Grammy (Hootie & the Blowfish) and Country Music Association (solo) award winner. Throughout his career, Rucker and his bands sold over 20 million albums and on October 16, 2012, he became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee.

Current, renewed or new 2013-14 season ticket holders can enter to win tickets to the event by contacting the Stingrays office at (843) 744-2248. Winners will be announced Friday.

The Stingrays kick off their 21st season of hockey in the Lowcountry on Saturday, October 19 against the defending Kelly Cup Champion Reading Royals at 7:35 p.m. in Reading, Pennsylvania and celebrate Opening Night, Stingrays Alumni Game, Zooperstars! and 2013-14 schedule giveaway at the North Charleston Coliseum on Saturday, October 26 against their in-state rivals, the Greenville Road Warriors, at 7:05 p.m.

Hall of Fame players such as Jason Fitzsimmons, Dave Seitz, Brett Marietti, Nate Kiser, Rob Concannon and Matt Scherer along with fan-favorites Pierre-Luc O'Brien, Johann Kroll, Trevor Johnson and more return to the Coliseum ice for a pregame Alumni Game before the Stingrays battle the Greenville Road Warriors later that night. The world-famous Zooperstars! will perform during the intermissions and the first 5,000 fans receive a 2013-14 magnet schedule!
