The Ducks will host Hockey Fights Cancer (HFC) Night presented by UCI Health on Monday, Nov. 25 at Honda Center (vs. NY Islanders, 7 p.m.). For the league-wide initiative, the Ducks celebrate Hockey Fights Cancer Night to raise awareness for UCI Health and the Jessie Rees Foundation.
The interactive evening will encourage fan participation in a variety of ways including the "I Fight For" cards recognizing loved ones affected by cancer (available at the UCI Health Fair located outside of the Team Store, inside the TCL Entrance and on the Main Concourse). Fans will be invited to display their "I Fight For" cards during a Moment of Recognition taking place during the first period of Monday's contest.
The Jessie Rees Foundation ensures every kid fighting cancer has the support to Never Ever Give Up (NEGU) 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 toys and games to help pass the time in the hospital. The Anaheim Ducks are calling 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 inside the TCL Entrance. The first 200 people to donate to the JoyDrive will receive one Chick-fil-A® Digital Offer Card good for one (1) Original Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich, Grilled Chicken Sandwich, or Spicy Chicken Sandwich.* Limit one Digital Offer Card per donor.
Also, in support of the Jessie Rees Foundation, Chick-fil-A will be selling Mini-Plush Chick-fil-A Cow's for $5 each in the TCL South Entrance. For every Chick-fil-A Mini-Plush Cow purchased, Chick-fil-A will donate one Jessie Rees Foundation "NEGU" branded Chick-fil-A Mini Plush Cow to be put into a JoyJar. In addition, anyone that purchases one or more Chick-fil-A Mini Plush cows will be entered to win Free Chick-fil-A for a year.* Limit one entry per donor. Quantities of Mini-Plush Chick-fil-A Cow's are limited and will be sold on first-come, first-served basis.
With lavender serving as the official HFC color (representing awareness for all types of cancers), Ducks coaches, broadcasters and executives will sport lavender HFC ties in recognition of the evening, and players will wear black and lavender HFC warm-up jerseys that will be up for auction. Fans at the game or watching on the Fox Broadcast can also contribute to HFC Night by participating in the in-game auction featuring Ducks autographed HFC jerseys that will be worn during the team's warm-up. Jerseys will be available to bid on prior to the evening's game, starting at 5 p.m., and the auction will run until Tuesday, Nov. 26 until 12 p.m. To place a bid, text Ducks to 52182 or visit anaheimducks.com/ingameauctions. All proceeds will benefit the Jessie Rees Foundation.
