Fans urged to wear pink Oct. 27 Hockey Fights Cancer Night
The 2007-08 season marks the 10th anniversary of Hockey Fights Cancer, and the Nashville Predators are once again teaming up with the National Hockey League and NHL Players’ Association to help increase funds and awareness for the cause. All 30 clubs will participate in the league-wide initiative during the month of October, with Cancer Awareness Night being held Oct. 27 at the Sommet Center when the Predators host the Florida Panthers at 7 p.m. CT.

“None of us need look far to be touched by cancer personally, and our hockey family is no exception,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. “This effort combines the resources and commitment of the League, our member clubs, players, officials, as well as key partners, and reflects our collective dedication to help find resources and exposure to eradicate the disease.”

Through a special ticket promotion, five dollars from specific tickets sold will go to the Susan G. Komen Cancer for the Cure Foundation of Greater Nashville (www.komen-nashville.org).  The national anthem will be sung by Tracy Rode, the Greater Nashville Board President, and the Foundation will have an information table set up on the main concourse where pink bracelets and pins will be sold and fans can sign up for the November 3 Race for the Cure. Also located on the concourse Center will be a St. Thomas Health Services information table (www.sths.com/pink) and a Ford “Warriors for the Cure” Mustang.

Other activities and notes for the game include:

•    Fans are encouraged to wear the night’s official color – pink. Coaches and broadcasters will be wearing commemorative pink Hockey Fights Cancer tie, while each player helmet will carry a Hockey Fights Cancer decal.

•    Cancer survivors will be represented at the game, including young oncology patients and their families sitting in JP Dumont’s suite.  Breast Cancer survivors will be recognized on the band stage during the game.

•    Promotion of the Race for the Cure 5k Run taking place locally on Nov. 3
