Program Recognizes the Best of Northeast Iowa

During the Waterloo Black Hawks’ home opener on October 1st and each home game at Young Arena throughout the 2021/22 regular season, VGM Group will recognize people who make the Cedar Valley a better place.
The VGM Seats of Honor will return this autumn.  The program provides four free tickets to a different volunteer, Good Samaritan, or difference-maker each game.  That person’s service to the community will be recognized on the Young Arena video board and with a public address announcement at a stoppage in the action on the ice.

“Among the great things about living in the Cedar Valley are the people who go out of the way to do things on behalf of their neighbors,” said Black Hawks Vice President of Sales Parish Mason, “We are very excited to have VGM’s support of this program once again, and look forward to sharing many of these great stories.”
Nominations for the VGM Seats of Honor will be accepted through an online form by clicking here.  Fans are encouraged to share the names of deserving men and women, as well as details of their efforts or accomplishments.  The Hawks will notify selected individuals and invite them to an upcoming game.

VGM is a 100% employee-owned company based in Waterloo.  Van G. Miller founded VGM & Associates in 1986 as a national buying group for independent home medical equipment providers.  The organization has grown to include more than 20 business units, the majority of which are related to the HME industry.  The organization employs more than 1,100 people.

The Black Hawks’ schedule opens on Thursday in the Pittsburgh metro area with a matchup against the Green Bay Gamblers during the USHL Fall Classic.  Seats for Waterloo’s home opener versus the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders and all of the Hawks’ other home games are available from
