Bulletin: Senators to host Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night on Oct. 23
OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators in partnership with the Sens Foundation today announced that the club will host its fourth annual Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night, in support of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, at Scotiabank Place on Saturday, Oct. 23, when the Senators take on the Montreal Canadiens.

Hockey Fights Cancer, part of the National Hockey League’s cancer awareness program, is a joint charitable initiative founded in December 1998 by the NHL and NHL Players’ Association. It is supported by players, NHL member clubs, NHL alumni, the NHL Officials’ Association, professional hockey athletic trainers and equipment managers, corporate marketing partners, broadcast partners and fans throughout North America. The goal of Hockey Fights Cancer is to raise money and awareness for national and local organizations involved in cancer care and research. To date, the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative has raised more than $11 million.

In support of the initiative, Senators players have been wearing Hockey Fights Cancer decals on the backs of their helmets for all games during the month of October.

On Saturday, Senators president Cyril Leeder, general manager Bryan Murray and all members of the coaching staff will be wearing lavender Hockey Fights Cancer ties during the game to show support for the initiative. Lavender, which represents awareness for all types of cancer, is the designated colour for this year’s initiative.

Prior to the start of Saturday night’s game, Senators wives and girlfriends will join Leeder and Sens Foundation president Danielle Robinson to sell autographed one-of-a-kind Hockey Fights Cancer hats ($35) and ties ($75), along with Senators mini-gloves ($35). Unsigned Reflections on a Hockey Season photo books ($40), pink women’s Senators jerseys ($35) and Hockey Fights Cancer pucks ($10) will also be on sale at the Gate 1 and Gate 2 entrances of Scotiabank Place.

Fans attending the game can donate to Hockey Fights Cancer by adding one dollar or more to their purchases at any Scotiabank Place concession, restaurant or Sens Store location. Fans can donate $5 by text-messaging SENS to 45678 and $10 by text-messaging SENATORS to 45678. The NHL will match funds raised up to a total of $10,000. All proceeds from the sale of Hockey Fights Cancer merchandise and in-arena donations will go to support Hockey Fights Cancer and the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
