Here's the info, go to the game and order tickets as instructed below, if you can:
From an email from the Checkers:

By now you all know of the search for Kyle Fleischmann, but what you may not know is how much this effort is costing the family and friends of Kyle. I was watching the 10 o’clock news last night and they were talking about how they had placed a billboard up and had raised close to $7,000. In a search of this magnitude you can often feel insignificant; you ask yourself what can I do to help? I started by forwarding the emails on to everyone I knew and I shared the story with my wife so she could let her co-workers at CMC know about it. It still didn’t feel like enough. I began racking my brain and talking with my colleague Jon Rathbun about what we could do. It was very clear to us what we have the ability to do working for a professional sports team in Charlotte; we have the ability to raise awareness and the ability to raise money. In the past two home games we have raised close $3,000 for Brent Lewis who is battling ALS and over $10,000 for local Veterans organizations. Why not use our forum to raise money for the search efforts for Kyle…

And here we are, one day out from our next home game and we are asking for your help. Our organization has given us the opportunity to give back money from tickets purchased over the next 24 hours. We have taken our $20 Attack Zone ticket, discounted it to $15 and are going to give back $6 from each one purchased. We are going to use our game as a forum to get the word out and will set up a donation table at the game to secure additional funds. If it is $100 or $2,000, it will all help, but we can’t do it without your efforts.
Please forward this on to everyone you know, Jon has had multiple conversations with Kyle’s father and his best friend, and this has become a personal mission of ours to our part.
To purchase tickets please contact me at the number below or reach out to Jon Rathbun at 704-940-4080/jrathbun@gocheckers.com. No contribution is to small, please do your part!!

Interestingly enough, I noticed a Missing Persons flier on my office building's front door today. I imagine they're putting them up everywhere to raise awareness and hopefully, to find Kyle. That poor family... I hope they find him safe and sound!

It is my sincere hope that he is just a victim of amnesia or other mental incapacibility and will shortly turn up when someone takes him to a hospital or calls the police. I cannot bear the thought that someone so young and full of promise would be murdered.
