The Ducks hosted Hockey Fights Cancer Night at Honda Center on Sunday, October 15th in support of the Jessie Rees Foundation. The Jessie Rees Foundation ensures every kid fighting cancer has the support to Never Ever Give Up and they provide children in hospitals around the world with fun-filled JoyJars as a way to send hope and joy to children fighting cancer. JoyJars are filled with a variety of toys and games, to help pass the time in the hospital. The Ducks are asked all fans in attendance to help fill these jars by participating in a JoyDrive and bringing "crazy socks for courageous kids" that are fun socks for the kids to enjoy. Drop off locations will be at South and Northeast doors. Each donor to the JoyDrive received one Chick-fil-A Digital Offer Card good for one (1) Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich or 8-count Nugget meal (includes waffle potato fries and drink). Value of Digital Offer Card is $7.00.
As part of the Anaheim Ducks Hockey Fights Cancer Night game night activities, the first 5,000 fans in attendance received a Jessie Rees Foundation Never Ever Give Up wristband. Also, for the game's Moment of Recognition, fans will have the opportunity to honor loved ones that have battled the fight against cancer by filling out complimentary "I Fight For" tribute cards which will be available at the South and Northeast entrance and on the Main Concourse.
Fans can also contribute to HFC Night by participating in the in-game auction featuring Ducks autographed Hockey Fights Cancer jerseys that were worn during the team's warm-up. Jerseys will be available to bid on prior to the evening's game, starting at 4pm and the auction will run until Monday, October 16th at 3pm PST. To place a bid, text Ducks to 52182 or visit AnaheimDucks.com/ingameauctions. All proceeds will benefit the Jessie Rees Foundation.

Pucks will cost $30.
Fans will pick an individually wrapped puck at random and receive either a Ducks player- autographed commemorative puck or - for 23 lucky fans - a surprise Ducks player-autographed orange puck. The lucky winners of the Surprise Puck Sale will receive an autographed jersey. In addition to the 23 lucky orange puck winners, the fan that selects the SoCal Honda Dealers blue puck, will win the evening's grand prize, courtesy of SoCal Honda Dealers.
