Win a bobblehead and bid on a special jersey at Ben Wallace Bobblehead Night at the Drive!

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Fans will get the chance to win a limited-edition Ben Wallace bobblehead and will have the opportunity to bid on special 'Fear the Fro' jerseys throughout Friday night's game.

The first 1,000 fans that make it through the doors will receive the bobbleheads. Doors open at 5:45 p.m. Throughout the night, fans will also be able to bid on special 'Fear the Fro' jerseys that pay homage to the Detroit Pistons' legend and co-owner of the Grand Rapids Drive, Ben Wallace. The highest bidders of those auctions will get a post-game photograph with their player and a signed jersey. All proceeds will benefit Wedgewood Christian Services.

“Lacks Enterprises, Inc. has been honored to partner with the Grand Rapids Drive for five years, each year hosting a theme night and supporting an amazing, local non-profit who is making a big difference in the West Michigan Community! This year we are thrilled to again highlight Wedgwood Christian Services and the many different ways that they tirelessly work toward the betterment of our community and the lives it serves,” says Jenn Groendyke, Manager of Public Relations for Lacks. “Lacks is also very excited to work with the Drive to sponsor Ben Wallace Bobblehead Night! I know that we, our employees, and the community are so excited to have Mr. Wallace be a part of Grand Rapids and we’re looking forward to a fun and exciting night!”
