In conjunction with the National Hockey League’s month-long initiative, the Chicago Blackhawks will host “Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night” at the United Center on Saturday, October 24 when the team takes on the Nashville Predators.

Logan Molenhouse, a 12-year-old from Mokena who has defeated cancer three times, will perform the ceremonial puck drop prior to the game. The Blackhawks will also be hosting a pink puck sale on the United Center concourse with all proceeds benefiting the Vera Bradley Foundation, which raises funds for breast cancer research. Other concourse tables around the arena will feature different cancer organizations while the silent auction will benefit pediatric cancer research.

“Hockey Fights Cancer” is a joint charitable initiative founded in December 1998 by the National Hockey League and National Hockey League Players’ Association. It is supported by players, NHL member clubs, NHL alumni, the NHL Officials’ Association, professional hockey athletic trainers and equipment managers, corporate marketing partners, broadcast partners and fans throughout North America. The goal of “Hockey Fights Cancer” is to raise money and awareness for national and local organizations involved in cancer care and research. To date, “Hockey Fights Cancer” has raised more than $10.5 million.
