Bulletin: Senators announce \u2018Movember\u2019 fundraising initiative

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today they will be hosting a ‘Movember’ fundraiser in association with Rickard’s, the TEAM 1200 and the Sens Foundation. Movember takes place during the month of November each year and inspires the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. These men raise funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer.

Senators players Matt Carkner, Erik Karlsson and Zenon Konopka will be participating in Movember this year. Each has pledged to grow a moustache for the duration of the month to help support and draw awareness to the cause. Fans can track the progress of the players and pledge support of their own through the Senators Movember network at http://ca.movember.com/mospace/network/sens.

Senators head coach Paul MacLean, a proud wearer of a moustache, is supportive of his players’ participation in Movember. “I’m happy to challenge our players to grow their own moustaches to support what is a very worthy cause.”

Fans and supporters of Movember will also be able to track the progress of the players at the Senators’ new Movember twitter account @SensStache.

The Senators are asking fans to show their support for the players by growing a moustache of their own to partake in the Movember movement. Those interested in supporting Movember without participating can do so by purchasing the Movember Madness ticket package or an imitation moustache, which will be on sale during November games at Scotiabank Place.

The Movember Madness ticket package, available now at www.capitaltickets.ca, includes a game ticket and a voucher for a Movember T-shirt, an imitation moustache and a large Rickard’s draft beer from Frank Finnigan’s on game night, all for $35. Five dollars from each ticket package will be donated to the Movember charity through the Sens Foundation. The Movember Madness package is available for three home games: Nov. 5 versus the Buffalo Sabres, Nov. 9 versus the New York Rangers and Nov. 27 versus the Carolina Hurricanes.

Imitation moustaches will be sold for $2 each at all games in November, with the net proceeds going to support Prostate Cancer Canada. In Ottawa, the organization has been supporting men and their families who are living with prostate cancer for more than 20 years. The moustaches will be also available at all three Sens Store locations (Carlingwood Mall, Place d’Orléans and Scotiabank Place).

In 2010, nearly 119,000 Canadian men and women participated in Movember, raising $22.3 million. For more information on Movember Canada, please visit http://ca.movember.com.
