“We’re excited to be a part of the Bulls franchise,” says Roxanne Alaniz, President of Alaniz Marketing. “There's a lot to do before that first pucks drops for the season opener in October, but when it does, San Francisco should be ready for a great time."
Alaniz is facilitating media partnerships and sponsorships for the Bulls and helping to increase public visibility as professional ice hockey returns to the Cow Palace for the first time in 16 years. “It's great to have Roxanne and her team on board. They’re committed to the team and are going to be a great addition to the Bulls organization,”
