The New York Rangers are asking fans to “Put Your Game Face On” and participate in a hockey playoff tradition of growing a playoff beard.
On Monday, April 29, starting at 12:30 p.m. at Madison Square Garden, Blueshirt fans are invited to help kickoff the 2013 Rangers Beard-A-Thon® by joining Rangers legend Rod Gilbert to get a final shave before starting to grow their playoff beards.
Participating fans will help raise money for the Garden of Dreams Foundation, which makes dreams come true for kids facing obstacles, joining a lineup of Rangers players and alumni already participating.
Fans who appear for the ”Final Shave Off” event and create a profile on the Rangers Beard-A-Thon® web site during the event will be entered for a chance to win playoff tickets. The Rangers Beard-A-Thon® is an opportunity for fans to raise money for a great cause with all net proceeds benefiting the Garden of Dreams Foundation.
Participants in the Rangers Beard-A-Thon® commit to maintain their beard as long as the Rangers remain in the playoffs and can invite family, friends, and business associates to pledge their playoff beards. Fans who are unwilling, or unable, to grow playoffs beards, can also create a profile to help raise money or pledge their friends or favorite Rangers player or alumni.
As an added incentive, the Rangers fan that raises the most money will win exclusive Rangers prizes. All net proceeds for the Rangers Beard-A-Thon® are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. For more information, or to enroll, please log onto www.beardathon.com/rangers.
