Hockey Fights Cancer night in Raleigh

October is Breast Cancer awareness month, and you've probably seen some of your favorite restaurants, bars and coffee shops donating a percentage of their October earnings to cancer research. The NHL is no different. You've probably seen the players wearing pink ribbon stickers on their helmets this season, and in the past you've seen players using pink sticks during October.
As part of the ongoing HOCKEY FIGHTS CANCER program, the Hurricanes will be offering discounted tickets to the October 22 home game against the Vancouver Canucks. Fans can receive up to $10 off the gate price of tickets, and up to $5 of every ticket sale will be used to fund cancer research agencies.
Click here for some details about how and where to purchase discounted tickets. By using a special "group ticket" request, fans can designate which of five local organizations. My personal preference is the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Even if you don't purchase a special ticket, and even if you don't do it right now, I suggest donating money to that cause.

See the Sedins! See Naslund! See Luongo! Support an excellent cause! Watch hockey!
