Red Wings for Red Kettles heat up
DETROIT -- Bragging rights are on the line as members of the Red Wings once again engage in a friendly bell ringing competition to see who can raise the most money for The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign. Players and staff members will be serving as Red Kettle Bell Ringers at metro Detroit retail locations, including select Kroger stores and Hockeytown Authentics in Troy from 5-7 p.m. EST on Dec. 8.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Red Wings and The Salvation Army (TSA) are joining forces in the Red Wings' For Red Kettles initiative to increase awareness throughout the community and encourage donations to sustain vital services to the less fortunate in the area. Ken Holland, Red Wings executive vice president and general manager, is serving as honorary chair of the 2009 Red Kettle Campaign for the fourth straight year.

“The next couple of weeks will be a lot of fun for the Red Wings and The Salvation Army,” Holland said. “We look forward to hosting red kettles at our games, and we’re excited to be at locations throughout the area ringing bells on Tuesday. The need to support The Salvation Army is more important than ever, and I hope our fans will join us and help raise crucial funds to support the many great services they offer.”

Fans who make a donation at the Red Kettle located at Hockeytown Authentics on Dec. 8 will receive 15 percent off their entire store purchase made from 5-7 p.m. EST. Offer excludes authentic merchandise and sale items.

The team will also host red kettles at home games on Dec. 9 (vs. St. Louis), Dec. 11 (vs. Anaheim), Dec. 14 (vs. Phoenix) and Dec. 17 (vs. Tampa Bay).  Fans attending Red Wings' home games on those nights will have the opportunity to assist TSA in meeting its metro Detroit goal of $7.8 million to sustain its annual services.
