Bulletin: Senators Launch ‘Tickets for Troops’ Program
8th Annual Canadian Forces Appreciation Night takes place Saturday, Nov. 5
The Tickets for Troops program is designed to encourage season-seat owners, suite holders and fans to donate their game tickets for the Nov. 5 matchup to deserving Canadian Forces members and their families. The goal of the program is to provide additional Canadian Forces members with the opportunity to be a part of the game-night tribute. Last year, Sens fans and sponsors provided 3,500 tickets for troops and their families.
“For the last eight years, the Senators have been proud to recognize the efforts and dedication of our men and women in the Canadian Forces through our Canadian Forces Appreciation Night,” said Senators president Cyril Leeder. “While we have seen the program grow to other Canadian National Hockey League clubs, our fans here in Ottawa have expressed a desire to do more themselves, and we believe our Tickets for Troops initiative gives them that opportunity to get directly involved.”
For questions about participating in the Tickets for Troops program, fans are asked to contact an account representative at 613-599-0300 (toll-free 1-800-444-7367). Fans wishing to support Tickets for Troops can also purchase tickets online at CapitalTickets.ca.
Once tickets have been donated, ticket holders will be issued a charitable income tax receipt from the Sens Foundation for the value of the tickets, prior to taxes.
