#Isles and @StBaldricks - Please help.

Here's your chance to help some kids who really need it and see the Isles host the Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins on Saturday, November 19th with discounted tickets.  Ed Westfall will enter the Isles Hall of Fame that night and his long-time broadcast partner Jiggs McDonald will be on hand for the festivities.

St. Baldricks is an organization that was formed by three reinsurance executives 11 years ago.  They have since raised over $117 million in an attempt to fight these two simple facts:

Every 3½ minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer.
Every 4 hours a child loses their life.

Get your tickets through the flyer at this link: Tickets: http://www.stbaldricks.org/file/events/newsletters/2011/oct/sbf-nyislanders_2011.pdf

Conquer Kids' Cancer on the Ice!

October 25, 2011 Conquer Kids' Cancer on the Ice!
Head down to the ice rink and be a hero for kids with cancer! The St. Baldrick's Foundation is teaming up with the New York Islanders for an exciting night of hockey to raise funds for childhood cancer research on Saturday, November 19th.

St. Baldrick's will receive a $20 donation for each $50 ticket package purchased through this flyer. The $50 ticket package includes: a ticket to the Islanders game (300 Level End Mezzanine), limited edition Islanders/St. Baldrick's ski cap and authentic St. Baldrick's shirt.

The game starts at 7:00 P.M. when the Islanders play against Stanley Cup Champions, the Boston Bruins. But, before then, you are invited to make a "bald" statement for kids with cancer at a special head-shaving event that will take place in the Lower Lobby of the Nassau Coliseum from 3:30 to 6:00 P.M. Walk-ins are welcome! After the game, all participants will have the opportunity to have their picture taken at center-ice.

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
