The Anaheim Ducks will host Hockey Fights Cancer Night at Sunday's game against the Dallas Stars at Honda Center, part of a monthlong league-wide initiative.
The first 3,000 fans entering the arena will receive lavender Hockey Fights Cancer ribbons to wear for the game. Ducks coaches, broadcasters and executives will wear lavender Hockey Fights Cancer ties.
Ducks players will have lavender Hockey Fights Cancer decals on their helmets throughout the month. And an online auction of game-used, player-autographed hockey sticks, wrapped in lavender tape, will be held at AnaheimDucks.com/auction .
Lavender is the color representing awareness for all types of cancer.
At the game, fans will be able to create inspiration cards recognizing loved ones affected by cancer. Fans will be invited to display their inspiration cards during a moment of recognition in the second period.
The cards will be available at The Hockey Spot in the parking lot on the north side of Honda Center, main entrances on its north and south sides, and at the community relations table at Section 212 on the Plaza Concourse.
The Ducks will honor Annie Sellas, Cathy Stockton and Nancy Varner, who founded Inland Women Fight Cancer in 2007, in a pregame ceremony. The group has raised $1.7 million for the Loma Linda University Cancer Center.
