Red Wings proud to participate in Third Annual 97.1 The Ticket Detroit SportsFest
Past and present members of the United States’ most successful NHL franchise set to appear at festive event celebrating the Motor City’s vibrant sports scene
Attendees of SportsFest will be able to test their puck skills by partaking in a wide variety of interactive hockey games (Top Shot Challenge, Super Deker, Gockey, etc.), while also expanding their Red Wings knowledge by taking a scenic tour through Hockeytown of yesteryear; several mementos and artifacts from throughout the team’s rich history will be on display for fans to enjoy. Red Wings forward Darren Helm will also be on hand to sign autographs during Saturday’s convention, as will renowned alumni Ted Lindsay, Chris Osgood and Dino Ciccarelli (exact autograph times TBD).
There will be a one-time donation fee of $10 apiece for athlete autographs at this year’s SportsFest, with 100% of the funds received going towards the 97.1 The Ticket/Beaumont Student Heart Check Program. Sports fans making a donation will receive a numbered wristband which automatically enters them into a lottery system. Select athletes’ autographs (incl. Chris Osgood) will only be available through this lottery system while remaining athletes will sign on a first-come, first-served basis for those with wristbands.
