Greenville, S.C. (February 21, 2018): Players from the Swamp Rabbits team came by to visit children at the Center for Developmental Services (CDS). Members from the team took pictures, signed autographs, and played hockey with the children. The visit was to promote the upcoming CDS Hockey Night with the Swamp Rabbits on Tuesday, March 6 at 7pm. A portion of the ticket sales from the event will help support CDS. Special Swamp Rabbit warm-up jerseys will also be available for auction to benefit CDS during the game.
