The Philadelphia Flyers are already the hottest ticket in town, now their wives just upped the ante.
Flyers Captain Defenseman Chris Pronger and his wife Lauren will show Philadelphia once again why the organization is so closely knitted to the community by hosting the Inaugural Flyers Wives Fashion Show 7:30 p.m. Wednesday night at the Hyatt at the Bellevue.
Dressed to the nines, various Flyers will be in attendance as their wives model off the debut of the new international Artelier Label from Philly fashion icon Nicole Miller. Philadelphia first lady Lisa Nutter, Tammy Reid wife of Eagles head coach Andy Reid, Peter and Kristen Lavoilette and Super Model Angelika Kallio will also be in attendance.
And just in case you were wondering if there’s any animosity, all looks clear off the ice as both goalies Sergei Bobrovsky and Ilya Bryzgalov will be in attendance with their wives.
After hosting the NHL Winter Classic and through their continuous work with charities, the Flyers are perhaps the most popular and accessible sports franchise in Philadelphia. Although you can see most of the Flyers throughout the city on any given night, the event offers a rare chance to officially meet some of the most elite players and gorgeous wives in the city during a cocktail and reception hour in one of the city’s most beautiful venues.
Guest will also have a chance to bid on unique Flyers memorabilia including autographed sticks, pucks and jerseys from past and present players. Just hold off on any on ice criticism, the nights proceeds assist Comcast-Spectatcor Charities helping out numerous local beneficiaries.
Tickets to the event are still available to the public. With sports, fashion and spirits it should be a night to remember for both of you.
