Tuesday's silent auction helped raise money for Hockey Fights Cancer.
The National Hockey League's Hockey Fights Cancer month concluded at the end of October, and in Minnesota, it culminated with the Wild hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday, October 30.

Breast Cancer Awareness Night included two in-arena silent auctions, one on the main concourse and one on Club level. Auction items included a game used pink stick autographed by USA Women's Hockey team member Natalie Darwitz, a Wild team signed pink jersey and other sports related memorabilia.  All proceeds from the evening's silent auctions benefited Susan G. Komen for the Cure - Minnesota Affiliate. 

Wild coaches and radio broadcasters wore pink Hockey Fights Cancer ties to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of HFC and as part of the Breast Cancer Awareness Night.  These ties were also autographed by the coaches and included in the silent auctions.

The Wild hosted special guests in On the Glass seats for the game. The special guests were cancer survivors and their family members.  Breast Cancer Awareness literature was also available at the Community Relations booth in the arena.

The Minnesota Wild and MSE Community Giving reminds everybody in the State of Hockey that the fight against cancer is a year round battle. Thank you for your ongoing contributions and support of HFC!
