This Saturday, November 17th, is the Second Annual Cubs for Cancer event, in support of childhood cancer, taking place at the Bayshore during the Owen Sound Attack vs Flint Firebirds game at 7:30pm.
The Owen Sound Attack have partnered with both the Canadian Cancer Society and Baywest Nissan KIDZ foundation to make the Cubs for Cancer event another success.
In September, Baywest Nissan held their Tickets for Test Drives event, bringing in adults and kids alike to meet players, enter raffles and test drive Nissan vehicles for Attack tickets. A final tally of the money raised and donation from Baywest KIDZ Foundation will be announced at the game on Saturday night.
Last week, the Owen Sound Attack and Canadian Cancer Society Bluewater office held a Head Shave and Pony Tail Cut event at the Bayshore, which featured 5 Attack rookies getting their head shaved after raising money for childhood cancer over the past two months. Many members of the community also participated, having campaigned the community for pledges and eventually shaving their head or cutting their pony tail to make wigs for cancer patients.
Immediately following the Head Shave, the players and community headed over to Boston Pizza, where many Attack players served food and drinks and mingled with fans while watching fellow teammates Nick Suzuki, Brady Lyle and Markus Phillips in the Canada vs. Russia series.
Final tally of what the head shave and celebrity serve has raised is still to be announced…
The Cubs for Cancer game will feature special theme jerseys which were designed by 8-year-old Finn Hurley-Johnston, who is seen in the photo below with Nick Suzuki, Jackson Doherty, Carter Robertson and Brady Lyle, sporting Finn’s awesome design.
Make sure you are in your seats by 7:30PM on Saturday night as we have a ceremonial puck drop featuring various members of the community. During the game, fans will have the opportunity to get involved in the Cubs for Cancer event in various ways. There will be a silent auction table with fantastic prizes available to bid on, as well as the opportunity to participate in a puck toss during the second intermission.
Following the game, the Cubs for Cancer game worn jerseys will be auctioned off live with the players. The jersey will be signed by the player on the spot. If you would like to be part of the live auction, please ensure you sign up at the Canadian Cancer Society booth on the south concourse during the game.
We are accepting donations for Cubs for Cancer until the end of the game on Saturday night. If you would like to make a donation, you can do so at the Canadian Cancer Society office on 2nd Street East, at the MacVicar & McComb ReMax Attack Box Office at the Bayshore or by contacting Devon Yakabuski with the Attack at 519.371.7452 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
