Hormel Foods has been a proud sponsor of the Austin Bruins since the inception of the team nearly 10 years ago. To celebrate the partnership, and the dedication of the Austin community to the team and the company, we are proud to introduce the Hormel Foods Hometown Hero Program. The beauty of this program is that it is run by you, our Austin Bruins fans! You will nominate heroes from our community: this could be a teacher, first responder or someone who is heavily involved in the community. This could be anyone, this could be YOU! These presentations will be made at four home games throughout the season, where the heroes will be introduced to the fans, awarded a special Hormel Foods Hometown Hero jersey and get to do a ceremonial puck drop. We are very excited about the opportunity to recognize these local heroes that are already doing good in our community. Go Bruins!
