Epilepsy Awareness Night, presented by Heidenhain


Did you know 1 in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy during their lifetime?

The condition doesn’t play favorites: People are diagnosed with epilepsy at any age and it can be triggered by a wide range of factors. The Chicago Wolves are determined to broaden the conversation of this condition and to raise funds to cure it. The first 2,500 fans who entered Allstate Arena that night received a T-shirt, courtesy of Heidenhain.

To raise awareness about epilepsy and to raise money for Chicago Wolves Charities in conjunction with the team’s Epilepsy Awareness Night, presented by HEIDENHAIN, on Saturday, Dec. 19, the Wolves hosted a combined online and silent auction to allow all hockey fans the opportunity to bid on unique epilepsy-themed commemorative jerseys.

To accentuate the bond Wolves general manager Wendell Young has with his older son, Matthew, who was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2013, these exclusive autographed jerseys represented some of the sport’s premier father-son relationships that also have Wolves ties.

The autographed jerseys available during the auction were from Wendell Young (No. 1), Chris Chelios (No. 7), Jake Chelios (No. 42), Christian Hanson (No. 32), David Hanson (No. 16), of the Hanson Brothers, Gordie Howe (No. 9, not autographed), and Marty Howe (No. 27). We also had commemorative jerseys from Wolves forwards Pat Cannone (No. 12) and Ty Rattie (No. 8) as well as a team-signed Wendell Young jersey.

Thank you so much to our friends who attended Epilepsy Awareness Night and to those who participated in the auction.

David Hanson, with his son, Christian.
