The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) is inviting fans to continue their support in the fight against cancer. In wake of the successful Rally Against Cancer in-game fundraiser held on October 22, Oilers fans will have one last opportunity to purchase this year’s limited edition retro white Rally scarves that sold-out in-game in the Rally Against Cancer Online Auction which runs from October 24 through November 8.
There are over 80 items up for grabs this year which include a complete set of Edmonton Oilers autographed, game worn vintage away jerseys from the October 18 Battle of Alberta game against Calgary. Other highlighted items include a Nugent-Hopkins game-used stick, a 2011-12 team signed jersey and a Wayne Gretzky autographed Edmonton Oilers replica jersey.
The auction launches on Monday, October 24 at 5PM MDT and will wrap up on November 8 at 8PM MST with staggered end times. This year’s fundraising efforts will go to support the Alberta Cancer Foundation in support of the Cross Cancer Institute and the EOCF.
The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation’s Rally Against Cancer fundraiser helps support the league-wide NHL and NHLPA Hockey Fights Cancer initiative which raises money and awareness for cancer among all 30 member teams during the month of October.
Since its inception in 2001, the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation has donated in excess of $14 million to charitable organizations that serve the communities of Northern Alberta.
