Hockey Fest offers family action and chance to help beat Autism

NOVI, Michigan – Kids and adults can experience the thrills of a fast-paced hockey game and help support autism research and local treatment programs during the sixth annual Hockey Fest scheduled for Saturday, July 19 at the Canton Kroger store parking lot. The event, sponsored by Kroger, WNIC 100.3 FM, and WDIV/Local 4 ClickOnDetroit, kicks off at 11 a.m. and continues until 3 p.m.

Detroit Red Wings’ own Ted Lindsay will sign autographs between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m., with other Red Wings alumni attending. Event proceeds from food, memorabilia and raffle will benefit The Ted Lindsay Foundation. Jay Towers from WNIC’s Jay Towers in the Morning will greet guests and sell raffle tickets from 1-3 p.m.

Admission to Hockey Fest is free, with the event featuring the following:

• “Face Off” in the Top Shot inflatable gallery

• Ultimate hockey game in the mini rink

• Puck radar cage for players to take their fastest shot

• Tour of hockey history in the “Legends of Hockey” exhibit

• Chance to sign up to win great prizes including tickets to a Detroit Red Wings game

Attendees can help support the Ted Lindsay Foundation by making coin box contributions or purchasing scan cards located at Kroger registers July 19 through August 31.

“Kroger has teamed with the Ted Lindsay Foundation for many years in a quest to find a cure for autism,” said Jayne Homco, president, The Kroger Co. of Michigan. “We hope families will join us for the fun and thrills of Hockey Fest as we work together to fund autism research and educational programs.”

Autism is a developmental disorder that appears during the first three years of life, affecting the brain’s normal development of social and communication skills. About one in 68 children has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), with ASD occurring in all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups.

“Autism affects not only the child but the entire family,” Lindsay said. “Through the support of companies such as Kroger and its customers, we have already raised over two million dollars dedicated specifically to research.”

The Canton Kroger store hosting Hockey Fest is located at 45540 Michigan Ave. For more information or directions, call 734-397-2368.
