In-Game Oilers Ladies St. Patrick’s Day Puck Surprise

Tonight as the Edmonton Oilers take on the St. Louis Blues at Rexall Place fans at the game will be able to test their Irish luck in the annual St. Patrick’s Day Puck Surprise promotion. Individually wrapped Oilers signed pucks will be sold for $20 each on the main concourse. Each Oiler signed one puck in gold ink and the 25 lucky fans who un-wrap those special pucks will win a team signed stick. All proceeds of the Puck Surprise promotion will also go to the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation in support of the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Northern Alberta and the Rainbow Society of Alberta.

The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) is dedicated to building strong and vibrant communities by contributing its resources and financial support to charitable organizations that serve the residents of Oil Country.  Since 2001, the EOCF has worked to change lives in Oil Country through their support of a host of deserving organizations.  The Foundation gives back in excess of $1 million annually to registered charities throughout Central and Northern Alberta who focus their activities on youth, education and health and wellness.
