DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings are asking fans to wear pink this Saturday, Oct. 11, when the team hosts the Anaheim Ducks for the eighth annual Breast Cancer Awareness Night, presented by Team Rehab, at Joe Louis Arena at 7:00 p.m. Any fan who wears pink to the game can enter to win a 2014-15 team-signed Red Wings jersey by picking up a raffle ticket on the concourse behind Section 126.

Fans can also participate in a variety of activities to win prizes while raising funds to help alleviate the costs of breast cancer screening and treatment for uninsured and underinsured women in the Metro Detroit area. When doors open at 5:30 p.m., the Joe Louis Arena concourse will feature a silent auction, mystery puck draw, 50/50 raffle and a special sale of Red Wings winter knit hats, with all proceeds benefiting the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute.

BCA Night activities include:

•For $35, fans can purchase an autographed hockey puck from an assortment of 300 hockey pucks signed by members of the 2014-15 team. Each signed puck will be packaged in a black box to conceal the autograph. The fan who receives the box with a puck signed in gold by Jimmy Howard will meet the Red Wings goaltender after the game.

•Forty-two unique items will be auctioned off behind Section 126, including: the players’ sticks wrapped in pink hockey tape that will be used during the pregame warm-ups; a 2013-14 team-signed Winter Classic replica jersey; defenseman Brendan Smith’s tickets to the Red Wings home game on Sunday, Nov. 9 with a post-game meet and greet; a 2014-15 team-signed Jimmy Howard goalie stick and a variety of Red Wings experiences, including the opportunity to ride the Zamboni at a Red Wings game.

•Fans can purchase black cuffed winter knit hats with an embroidered pink and white Winged Wheel logo for $15 (cash and check only) behind Section 112 on the concourse to benefit the Karmanos Cancer Institute.

•The Red Wings will honor those affected by breast cancer by hosting 40 patients and survivors in two suites. Each will receive a special gift bag with Red Wings and breast cancer awareness items enclosed.

•Defenseman Brendan Smith will welcome 10 two-time breast cancer patients and survivors to a suite and meet his guests outside the locker room following the game.

•Captain Henrik Zetterberg will host breast cancer patients and their families in the Zetterberg Foundation Suite.

•The Red Wings will host more than 60 breast cancer patients, survivors and their guests during the team’s morning skate at 10:30 a.m. prior to Breast Cancer Awareness Night.

•A portion of the Detroit Red Wings Foundation’s 50/50 raffle on Saturday will benefit Karmanos Cancer Institute.

•A video tribute to breast cancer patients and survivors will play during the game.

The Red Wings are offering a special group savings rate to breast cancer patients, survivors and anyone who has been affected by breast cancer. The ticket package includes Red Wings upper bowl premium tickets for $35 or $50 apiece, with $10 from each ticket sold being donated to help uninsured and underinsured women with the costs of diagnostic screenings and non-medical expenses at Karmanos Cancer Institute.
