ST. LOUIS - Over the last several months, Blues sales representatives asked season ticket holders and fans if they would like to make a $25 donation to send a military member to a hockey game.
Thanks to the generous donations of Blues fans, more than 1,300 active, reserve or retired members of the military and their families will enjoy the Nov. 9 game against the Arizona Coyotes.
The initiative to send members of the military to the game - on the house - is part of the team's Military Week. The club will hold their annual Salute to Military night - presented by Boeing - on Saturday, Nov. 11 when the New York Islanders come to town. Fans attending that game are encouraged to bring care package items to the game, which will be donated to troops serving overseas. In addition, the Blues will sell autographed mystery pucks outside Section 114 to benefit H.E.R.O.E.S. Care and Operation Shower.
Blues goalie Jake Allen will also wear a special military mask for the Nov. 11 game, which will be raffled at a later date to benefit H.E.R.O.E.S. Care.
