Weekend Preview: Blades to Host Addiction Awareness Night and Worcester Sports Day

The Worcester Blades are prepping for their final home series of the 2018-19 season vs. Les Canadiennes de Montreal.

On Saturday, the team will host Addiction Awareness Night with MOAR Recovery. Their mission is to organize recovering individuals, families, and friends into a collective voice to educate the public about the value of recovery from alcohol and other addictions.

On Sunday, it’s Worcester Sports Day. The Worcester Bravehearts, Massachusetts Pirates, Worcester 78’s, Worcester Smiles, and Worcester’s Flat Track Women’s Roller Derby Team will all be in attendance.

The Blades encourage Worcester youth, high school, and college teams to attend as well to celebrate our first season in Worcester. Tickets can be purchased online here as well as at the door on game day.
