Wolves eager to stick it to breast cancer


October 15, 2014

For the fifth year in a row, the Chicago Wolves are teaming with Dr. Sandy Goldberg’s A Silver Lining Foundation to stick it to breast cancer on Breast Cancer Awareness Night, presented by Northwest Community Healthcare.

Prior to the Wolves’ 7 p.m. game on Saturday against Lake Erie at Allstate Arena, every Wolves player will use special pink sticks during warmups. Several players will autograph each stick and they’ll be sold for a $175 donation — the price of a mammogram — at the team’s Customer Service Booth. Each fan who acquires a stick also receives a professional photo with that player. Heidenhain again has agreed to match each $175 donation.

Throughout October, fans also can purchase Stick It to Breast Cancer T-shirts, hoodies, and autographed pucks at home games and via ChicagoWolves.com. Proceeds benefit A Silver Lining Foundation’s Buy a Mom a Mammogram program as well as Chicago Wolves Charities.

“It’s a really special partnership,” said Chicago Wolves senior vice president of operations Courtney Mahoney. “It starts with Dr. Sandy because she’s so passionate about her organization, which makes us be just passionate to do as much as we can for her cause. The thing that makes it resonate so much is that for every $175 raised, you know it’s going to pay for a mammogram for someone who cannot afford one.”

Prior to Saturday’s game, five breast cancer survivors from Northwest Community Healthcare will join Wayne Messmer on the ice during the national anthem. A Silver Lining Foundation volunteer Nancy Amicangelo, who has fought breast cancer twice, will perform the honorary puck drop. Breast cancer survivors will continue to be celebrated throughout the night.

“With more than 3 million women battling breast cancer, everywhere you turn there is a mother, daughter, sister or friend battling this disease,” said Dr. Allyson Jacobson, medical director of the NCH Breast Program. “There can be life after breast cancer. The prerequisite is early detection. Don’t just be aware of breast cancer; act on it and schedule a mammogram.”
