Foundation Night, generously presented by Jersey Mike's, celebrates the Chicago Blackhawks Foundation's commitment to giving back to the Chicagoland community. In dedicating an entire game to the cause, the Foundation will raise awareness and funding for the programming it provides, the individuals it serves and the grant recipients it supports. Additionally, WGN-TV has partnered with the team on a special pregame show and game broadcast focused on Chicago Blackhawks Foundation initiatives and community partners.
All proceeds from Foundation Night activities will go directly to the Chicago Blackhawks Foundation, and there are several opportunities for fans at the game as well as those watching at home to help contribute to the cause throughout the evening:
Fans who make a donation at chicagoblackhawks.com/foundationnight or by texting "HAWKSGIVE" to 52-182 will have an opportunity to win a new prize during each period. Prizes include two 100-level tickets to a game with a player meet-and-greet during the first, a team-signed stick during the second, and a Patrick Kane signed jersey during the third.
The Blackhawks Split-the-Pot will be available online at blackhawks5050.com. One lucky fan will win half of the proceeds, selected at the conclusion of the Foundation Night game.
In addition to the in-arena silent auction and autographed mystery puck sales, attending fans can also participate in the following donation stations.
Patrick Sharp will be signing autographs from 6 - 7 p.m. in the Atrium for fans who make a $20 donation.
A limited-edition t-shirt will be available for a $25 donation, while supplies last.
Fans can enter the Corey Crawford Car Raffle, benefitting the Chicago Blackhawks Foundation, by purchasing a raffle ticket for $40. For this special evening, his restored 1970 Chevy Chevelle will be displayed in the Atrium, but raffle tickets will also still be available outside section 120.
