The Flames Better Halves, wives and girlfriends of the Calgary Flames players, are continuing a special Christmas initiative in partnership with Coca-Cola for the 2008 holiday season with the sale of limited edition Christmas tree ornaments at upcoming games.
Ornaments will be on sale on the concourse of the Pengrowth Saddledome at Flames games on Friday, December 12th and Friday, December 19th. The third annual collectable edition will be available for only $10 each with all proceeds to benefit the charitable arm of the Calgary Flames; The Flames Foundation for Life.
The Better Halves and Coca-Cola will also be raffling off a Christmas tree featuring a set of 24 individually autographed ornaments by the Flames team at each game. Raffle tickets are $5 each or free with the purchase of two ornaments.
The group has been active in the Calgary community since the club’s arrival in 1980 and has been behind numerous fundraising events during that period. The Flames Foundation for Life is at the heart of all Flames fundraising efforts and has already directed over $32 million in funding to education, medical research, health, amateur sport and recreation.
