|Rally Against Cancer
Through Hockey Fights Cancer, the NHL and the NHLPA are committed to raising funds and awareness for hockey’s most important fight. Each October, Rally Against Cancer returns to the concourse of Rexall Place to support this worthy cause. Spearheaded by the Oilers Ladies, Rally Against Cancer gives fans the opportunity to purchase a limited edition Oilers item with all funds being directed to Kids With Cancer’s ‘Brainworks’ program and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation. Keep your eyes peeled for information on this upcoming event.
|Face Off Against Hunger Luncheon
The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation and the Oilers Copper Jackets will once again get into the Christmas spirit by hosting a luncheon in support of the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton on Friday, December 13, 2013 at the Shaw Conference Center. The Face Off Against Hunger Luncheon has become a holiday tradition in Oil Country and guests are invited to help make the festive season just a little bit brighter for those in need. Tickets for the 14th Annual Face Off Against Hunger Luncheon will be available for purchase in October.
|Shirts Off Our Backs
Back by popular demand, the Oilers Ladies Shirts Off Our Backs program is held every December. A full roster of signed jerseys is up for grabs as raffle tickets are drawn throughout the game. Tickets are available for purchase at $5 each or five for $20 with proceeds benefitting the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation.
Hockey Talks was created as a month-long initiative to increase dialogue and awareness about mental health and effective treatment. In its inaugural year, seven Canadian teams dedicated a game night to Hockey Talks during the month of February. Each winter, the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation raises money through ‘Puck Surprise’, in which limited-edition, hand-signed pucks, accompanied by a player card, are sold on the concourse for $20. If a lucky fan receives one of 25 gold-signed pucks they also win a team-signed stick. Funds raised through this in-game initiative go to support the Canadian Mental Health Association’s ‘Light Up Your Mind’program in Edmonton.
