Dallas Stars captain Jamie Benn will spend Sunday, Sept. 10 and Monday, Sept. 11 raising awareness and funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Benn will be showing his support throughout the two-day period for Lovejoy High School student Savanna Roulette. Since August of 2016, she has raised over $75,000 for the MS Society in honor of both her mother and golf coach, who are living with multiple sclerosis.
On Sunday, Sept. 10, the captain will be serving smoothies at Jamba Juice at The Shops at Legacy (5700 Legacy Dr., #A2, Plano, Texas 75024) from noon - 2 p.m. Local Jamba franchise partner, Alameda Juice, will make a donation to the MS Society on behalf of Benn's appearance. Fans are encouraged to attend.
The next day, Benn will be hosting the On The Move Luncheon Kickoff on Monday, Sept. 11 from 6 - 8 p.m. at The Eberhard (2107 N. Henderson Ave., Dallas, Texas 75206). The event aims to raise awareness among young professionals in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex about the mission of the MS Society and to raise additional funds for the organization. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased by clicking here or by calling 713-394-2965.
Benn was named National Multiple Sclerosis Society 2016 "Person on the Move" last year and the organization is the forward's personal charity of choice, honoring his friend Sandy Orr. In addition to his work with the MS Society, Benn has gifted four tickets and parking passes to every Dallas Stars regular season home game since the 2013-14 season to those individuals living with multiple sclerosis and their families.
