The Bridgeport Sound Tigers Booster Club is celebrating its twelfth year. A membership fee is collected annually. Monthly meetings feature guest speakers and are usually held the third Tuesday of the month. Each member receives a Membership card, pin, and a free monthly newsletter Tiger Tales.
To help our players and coaches get acquainted to the area we fill a welcome bag with information, coupons, and goodies and assist them in finding services they may need while they live in our community.
Road trips are also sponsored in order to provide support to our team on the road. While the team is on the road we supply them with food for their bus ride. We host visiting Booster Club members when they visit the arena and all members are welcome to attend the annual AAHLBC Convention.
The Booster Club hosts a Snowflake dinner in January and an Awards dinner at the end of the season. At least one player is seated at each table. Socializing and a good time are had by all who attend.
The Booster Club assists the front office with supplying volunteers to help hand out promotional material at home games and welcome fans to the Arena.
During each game the Booster Club has a table set up on the concourse. Fundraising items from player pins, spirit bracelets, Sound Tiger dog tags, and other hockey memorabilia is sold and raffled off from the table.
Because of these offers we have been able to donate over $150,000 in the last eleven years to very special charitable organizations. The Booster Club has supported the Ronald McDonald House, PT Barnum Pediatric Center, the Umbrella Group, Make a Wish Foundation, American Diabetes Association, American Cancer Society, Special Olympics, CdL Foundation, Community Closet, and the New York Islanders Children’s Foundation.
This past season we rose over $3,000 and made a contribution to the Sandy Hook Memorial Fund for our neighbors in Newtown.
Along with these wonderful charities we also support the Siberian Tigers at the Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport.
The most visible way the Bridgeport Sound Tiger Booster Club shows their support to the Sound Tigers is by letting them know we are there when they are on the ice — with our voices!
These are currently drafts and membership will vote to pass them at the September 24th General Membership meeting.

The purpose of the Bridgeport Sound Tiger Booster Club is to show our support to both the team and local communities and promote the love of hockey with the players, fans and other Booster Clubs.
The BSTBC has generously contributed to many charities. We work year round to raise funds for these charitable organizations and are proud of what we have accomplished so far.
