Chicago Blackhawks Charities will launch an online ticket raffle today, Friday, Dec. 6, for a chance to win one authentic Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup championship ring designed by Jostens in collaboration with the Blackhawks. The 14-carat white gold ring weighs approximately 96 grams and consists of 260 diamonds and gemstones totaling roughly 14.68 carats. Raffle tickets can be purchased for $2 each (minimum purchase of five tickets) via www.chicagoblackhawks.com/ringraffle through 2 p.m. CT on Friday, March 21, 2014. The winner will be announced later that day during the March 21 game vs. the Carolina Hurricanes at the United Center and posted on chicagoblackhawks.com. All proceeds from the raffle will benefit Chicago Blackhawks Charities.
The authentic ring will be engraved with the winner’s name and presented by a Blackhawks representative during a special ceremony on Sunday, April 6, 2014, before Chicago hosts the St. Louis Blues. Four premium seats to the April 6 contest and a United Center tour will also be included for the winner and three guests, in addition to a two-night stay at a downtown Chicago hotel and round-trip coach air travel (if necessary). The raffle is subject to the Official Raffle Rules, which can be reviewed and/or downloaded at chicagoblackhawks.com.
