Jonathan Toews is giving away some of his time and a V.I.P. Chicago Blackhawks experience to two lucky fans in exchange for donations to a cause that's all about healthy eating.
Toews has been working with The Kitchen Community non-profit organization, which installs edible gardens in underserved schools. The customizable gardens are designed to teach children how to plant, grow, water and harvest herbs and vegetables, as well as instill good eating habits.
Toews and Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford spent some time working with the kids from McAuliffe Elementary school in Chicago in October. The Kitchen Community also has gardens planted in Denver, Los Angeles, Memphis, Pittsburgh and Indianapolis.
An entry into the raffle for the grand prize is $10 per entry, and other prizes, such as t-shirts and signed pucks, are being raffled off. The grand prize is airfare for two to Chicago plus a hotel stay, entry to the morning skate and lunch with Toews, two tickets to the Blackhawks' game against the Detroit Red Wings on Jan. 10., car service to the game and another meetup with Toews after the game.
