October 27, 2016
The Winning Numbers Are… | The Illinois Lottery Cup kicks off the weekend with the Chicago Wolves and Rockford IceHogs’ first of 12 meetings this season. The Wolves visit Rockford on Friday (Oct. 28), and then the two squads meet again on Saturday (Oct. 29) in Rosemont for the back end of their first of three home-and-home series. The Illinois Lottery Cup winner is based on wins — with the tiebreaker being total points — in head-to-head games. Last season, Rockford took home the Cup with a 7-2-3-0 record against the Wolves.
Stick it to Breast Cancer | On Saturday, October 29th, the Chicago Wolves will host Breast Cancer Awareness Night as part of the team’s 7 p.m. game against the Rockford IceHogs. The Wolves ask fans to join the coaches, players, and staff in wearing pink attire in a show of solidarity in the fight against this all-too-common disease.
The Chicago Wolves’ commitment to A Silver Lining Foundation and Chicago Wolves Charities has inspired the American Hockey League franchise to discover new ways to raise money during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The team sold Survivor Sticks that give Wolves fans the chance to recognize and celebrate the breast cancer survivors in their lives.
For a donation of $175, which covers the cost of a mammogram for someone who cannot afford it, a fan receives a Survivor Stick and gets to choose the Wolves player who will use it during the game on Oct. 29. The fan also gets to choose the survivor’s name that the Wolves player inscribes on the stick. After the game, the purchaser receives the Survivor Stick and gets to take a professional portrait with the player.
Exclusive T-shirts and autographed pucks are available to purchase online and at the game. Proceeds from all of these events benefit A Silver Lining Foundation and Chicago Wolves Charities.
Postgame Autographs | Wolves fans! Please be sure to stop by the Northwest Lobby behind Section 108 following Sunday’s game for your chance to meet two Chicago Wolves players as part of Little Debbie Sundays.
Gotta Catch ’Em All | On Sunday when the Wolves face off against the 2016 Calder Cup champion Cleveland Monsters, fans are encouraged to break out their cellphones and see which Pokémon are frequenting Allstate Arena during Pokémon GO Day. Fans can pick up maps — featuring PokéStops, gym location and incubation routes — at Social Central located next to the Customer Service Booth behind Section 116 on the main concourse. Fan can also find Pokémon character stickers around the concourse and post photos of themselves with the stickers on Twitter or Snapchat for chances to win prizes.
