The season of giving is upon us and what better way to give back to the community than to support local Oil Country charities, all the while entering for a chance to win an autographed Oilers jersey.
Back by popular demand the Oilers Ladies Shirts Off Our Backs program will be held in-game on Saturday, December 4 when the Edmonton Oilers take on the St. Louis Blues.
The Oilers Ladies will be selling raffle tickets available for $5 each or five for $20 until the end of the second intermission. Tickets will be drawn periodically throughout the game and the winning numbers will be posted on the scoreboard and matrix. A full roster of signed jerseys will be given away by the end of the night to lucky fans.
“The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation is proud to have the Oilers Ladies as an integral driving force behind Shirts Off Our Backs. Their compassion and dedication to the community always shines through their fundraisers, bringing needed funds to local charities and providing fans with unique opportunities,” said Natalie Minckler, Executive Director of the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation.
This is the second fundraiser of the 2010-11 season for the Oilers Ladies. Supporting the NHL-wide initiative Hockey Fights Cancer, the Oilers Ladies held their Rally Against Cancer fundraiser on October 23 where they sold Rally Against Cancer Scarves for $20. The in-game fundraiser raised $100,000 for local cancer charities in Oil Country.
