On Tuesday, the Phoenix Coyotes held their Annual Luncheon to benefit Coyotes Charities at Glendale Arena. The luncheon gave fans the chance to sit at a table with their favorite Coyotes player or coach while dining and taking part in a variety of activities.
Among the events at Tuesday's lunch was a silent auction benefiting Coyotes Charities. Some of the items being auctioned off included jerseys autographed by Steve Yzerman, Bobby Hull, the Carolina Hurricanes and Wayne Gretzky. Attendees also had the chance to bid on unique gift baskets made by Coyotes wives, Beth Ricci, Andrea Doan, Nancy Joseph and Kathy Nash. The baskets included a variety of apparel, DVD's and other favorites of the Coyotes players.
In addition to the luncheon and silent auction, fans got a look at some of their favorite Coyotes player's lives away from the rink as Coyotes Color Analysts Darren Pang and Louie DeBrusk conducted live interview with Shane Doan, Curtis Joseph, Tyson Nash, Mike Ricci, Mike Leclerc and Head Coach Wayne Gretzky.
"The Welcome to Coyotes Country luncheon gave Coyotes Charities a big boost in revenue and gave our corporate sponsors and fans a unique opportunity to get to know our players and coaches," said Director of Coyotes Charities John Breslow.
