Buffalo Sabres coaches, executives and broadcasters will be wearing commemorative pink “Hockey Fights Cancer” ties for this Friday’s home game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, in conjunction with HFC Awareness Nights.
The 2007-08 season marks the 10th Anniversary of Hockey Fights Cancer. The NHL and NHLPA will commemorate this milestone with League and team programming throughout the season to help increase funds and awareness for Hockey Fights Cancer.
Fans can purchase the pink HFC ties, as well as
NHL Reflections on a Hockey Season Book, in the Sabres Store at HSBC Arena.
The first program, Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Month, commenced October 4 and will include involvement from all 30 Clubs, players, management and fans.
The Buffalo Sabres Foundation has awarded funding to organizations that strive to end the fight against cancer, including: Roswell Park, Matthew Foster Foundation, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Throughout the month of October, each NHL Club will host a Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night to help raise money and awareness for this important cause.
For a $20 donation, fans attending this Friday’s game against Columbus can also help to the Buffalo Sabres Foundation by taking part in the “Puck Surprise.”
The Sabres Significant Others and Sabres staff members will be located at tables in the HSBC Arena pavilion beginning at 5:30 p.m., selling various autographed pucks in drawstring bags. Each puck sold will be signed by a Sabres player. Quantities are limited.
