Red Wings to hold \u2018Wings For Wishes\u2019 game

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings will host their second annual ‘Wings for Wishes’ game this Thursday, March 27, when the team takes on the Montreal Canadiens at 7:00 p.m. (FOX Sports Detroit & 97.1 The Ticket) to benefit Make-A-Wish® Michigan.

The team will hold a mystery puck draw on the concourse behind Section 126 when doors open at 5:30 p.m. For $35, fans will have the opportunity to purchase from an assortment of 300 hockey pucks signed by members of the 2013-14 team and packaged in a black box to conceal the autograph. Each puck has been signed by a Red Wings player and comes with a certificate of authenticity. One in three pucks available at Thursday’s game has been signed by Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk, Daniel Alfredsson, Jimmy Howard or Niklas Kronwall. The fan who purchases and opens the puck signed in gold by Alfredsson will meet him after the game.

Behind Section 126, fans can purchase blue Make-A-Wish wristbands for $5 to show their support for the cause. In addition, the Detroit Red Wings Foundation’s 50/50 raffle will benefit Make-A-Wish Michigan.

New this year, the Red Wings will host an online fundraiser for Make-A-Wish Michigan. Fans who donate at certain donation levels will receive corresponding incentives, including discount coupons at Hockeytown Authentics, autographed hockey pucks and a practice visit or tickets to a Red Wings home game during the 2014-15 season. Fans can make an online donation by visiting www.DetroitRedWings.com/WingsforWishes.

Proceeds from these activities will be used to grant wishes to kids like Joseph, a 7-year-old Red Wings fan from Livonia, Mich., whose wish is to attend WrestleMania XXX in New Orleans, La., this April. Groups, such as the Red Wings, who raise more than $5,000 are given the opportunity to participate in Make-A-Wish Michigan’s Adopt-A-Wish program and have one child’s wish dedicated to their efforts.

The Zetterberg Foundation Suite will host four wish kids, including Joseph, and their families on Thursday. They will be treated to free food and beverages along with goody bags, courtesy of captain Henrik Zetterberg and his wife, Emma. The Zetterberg Foundation Suite hosts patients and their families from local children’s charities at each home game during the regular season. To date, the suite has hosted more than 1,370 guests since the 2011-12 season.

The Red Wings were named one of five recipients of the national Chris Greicius Celebrity Award by Make-A-Wish® America during the 2011-12 season, joining Justin Bieber, Sesame Street, Nickelodeon and Buddy Valastro (Cake Boss). Make-A-Wish America honors celebrities and industry figures annually with its Chris Greicius Celebrity Award. The honorees are selected for their exceptional dedication to the mission of Make-A-Wish by helping grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
