Defending the Blue Line Charity Game

Get your tickets today! Defending the Blue Line is a fantastic organization!  Show them some love!

Heads up folks!  Our friends at Defending the Blue Line are hosting an NHL Players Charity Game on Sunday, October 28 at Mariucci Arena and there is still time to get tickets!  They have lined up a list of players that will (for one night at least) help you forget about the NHL lockout! They have generously agreed to accept sticks for Mikko the night of the charity game at the Defending the Blue Line booth, so if you are going to the game and have a stick or two lying around that you would like to donate, feel free to bring it with you!

This game is incredibly important to DTBL, as the lockout could have lasting effects on their fundraising efforts.  Their mission at DTBL is to ensure that children of military members are afforded every opportunity to participate in the game of hockey, by providing free equipment for military kids, hockey camps, special events and financial assistance for registration fees an other costs associated with hockey.  Wow! How awesome is that?!

In addition to collecting the sticks at the charity game, DTBL has been instrumental in the Mini-Sticks for Mikko program.  They serve as a collection/delivery point, have helped us spread the word about the project, they’ve assisted us in  securing some really cool sticks and even hosted Mikko’s family to last summer’s NHL Charity Game.  We couldn’t do it without their help!  Please join us in supporting this amazing organization!
