Ducks to Hold Hockey Fights Cancer Night Friday
October is the National Hockey League’s Hockey Fights Cancer (HFC) month, a charitable initiative established by the NHL as a way for the hockey community to come together to fight cancer, a disease that has affected so many individuals in the NHL.  Throughout the month, the Anaheim Ducks will join their fellow NHL players and will be wearing HFC lavender decals on their helmets in support of the cause.

The Anaheim Ducks will be participating in HFC month by hosting HFC Night at Honda Center on Friday, October 21st, as the Ducks play the Dallas Stars.  The Ducks have partnered with the Orange County/Inland Empire chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) to help raise awareness for LLS.  As part of the game-night activities, the first 3,000 fans in attendance will receive lavender HFC awareness ribbons to show their support of the cause.  In addition, an LLS representative will be honored with the evening’s Community Hero Award, which will recognize an individual from the organization who has significantly contributed in assisting the local community and helping in the fight against cancer.  LLS representatives will take part in the evening’s in-game activities such as Honorary Duck, Power Player, Stick Boy and Broadcaster, along with the evening’s Zamboni Riders and an in-game silent auction of Ducks autographed memorabilia will be held to raise funds for LLS.  Ducks executive management, coaches, broadcasters and staff will be showing their support for the HFC initiative by wearing lavender ties.  In addition to the Hockey Fights Cancer decals on the Anaheim Ducks players’ helmets, their hockey sticks will be wrapped in lavender tape during the pre-game warm-up and in game.  These player-used sticks will be available for purchase through the team’s online auction on www.anaheimducks.com following the Hockey Fights Cancer game-night.

Also assisting with this season’s Hockey Fights Cancer Night is Sara Blake, wife of Ducks left wing Jason Blake and her business partner Amy Oh will be supporting LLS, through their jewelry company, Mike & Dani, as they sell commemorative Wrap & Remember bracelets at Section 212.

The Wrap & Remember bracelet is a stylish calfskin bracelet and comes in double or single wrap and fits both men and women.  The Wrap & Remember bracelet will be available for purchase for $45 plus tax.  With every purchase of a bracelet Sara and Amy will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Both Jason Blake and Saku Koivu have personally been affected by leukemia and lymphoma and through their experiences have become advocates for the cause.  In support of the fundraising efforts, fans who purchase the Wrap & Remember bracelet at will also receive a photo autographed by Jason Blake and Saku Koivu.  Player autographed photos are available in limited quantities.  Will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. 

The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.
