Wings salute troops on Veterans Day
DETROIT -- The Red Wings will host their annual Military Appreciation Night this Thursday, November 11, when the Wings take on the Edmonton Oilers at 7:30 p.m. on Veterans Day (FOX Sports Detroit and 97.1 The Ticket).

Volunteers from Blue Star Mothers of America will be on hand to collect care package items and monetary donations at each entrance of Joe Louis Arena when the doors open at 6:30 p.m. For each item or $5 donated to Blue Star Mothers of America, fans will receive a raffle ticket and be entered to win an autographed Mike Modano jersey.

Blue Star Mothers of America will include all items collected on Thursday when they pack the care package boxes on Monday, November 15, and then ship them to soldiers overseas the following day. The care packages will also include AT&T calling cards, which were generously donated by Cell Phones for Soldiers. All monetary donations from Thursday’s game will help cover the cost of shipping the care packages.

In addition, fans can pick up a prepaid envelope at each entrance to participate in the Cell Phones for Soldiers program, which encourages people to send in their previously used cell phones. The donated cell phones are then recycled and the proceeds are used to purchase prepaid calling cards for American soldiers. For more information about the Cell Phones for Soldiers program, please visit http://www.cellphonesforsoldiers.com .

Suggested care package items include:

    * Wet wipes (cleaning wipes like Clorox and individual hand wipes like Wet Ones)
    * Hygiene items: travel size shampoo and conditioner, bar soap, deodorant, razors, shaving cream (not in an aerosol can), toothbrush and toothpaste, etc.
    * Socks and t-shirts (must be dark brown or khaki)
    * Holiday DVDs and items (i.e. Santa hats and Christmas stockings)
    * Laundry detergent and fabric softeners (unscented)
    * Chapstick and sunscreen
    * Gum
    * Powdered drink mixes and individual packets
    * Magazines, books and CDs
    * Playing cards
    * Disposable cameras
    * Hard candy

Military members in attendance will be honored during the game, including guests in the Quicken Loans Budd Lynch Veterans Suite. Earlier in the day, 50 military veterans and active members on leave plus their guests will attend the Red Wings morning skate at 10:30 a.m.

Less than 500 tickets remain for Thursday’s contest.  Tickets for all games throughout the 2010-11 season are available at the Joe Louis Arena Box Office, all TicketMaster locations including, Hockeytown Café, Hockeytown Authentics in Troy, Mich., or charge by phone at 800-745-3000.
