MSU hockey alums help in the fight against children's cancer
As a fundraiser for MSU hockey's Shoot for a Cure initiative to raise money for the fight against children's cancer, fans will be invited to take part in "Skate with the Pros", featuring several former Michigan State players now playing professional hockey. The event will be held at 2 p.m. on Wed., August 19 at Munn Ice Arena. Admission will be $10 per person.
"Skate with the Pros" is being held during Michigan State's annual Pro Camp, which brings former Spartans still playing professional hockey back to East Lansing to begin intensive training for upcoming professional team camps. After Wednesday's Pro Camp session, fans will have the opportunity to skate with several of the professional players, followed by an autograph session on the north concourse. Posters with pictures of participating players will be provided to all attendees for autographs.
Admission bracelets will be sold for $10 per person starting at 1 p.m. at the East and West entrances of Munn Ice Arena (on Chestnut and Birch Roads). Bracelets will be required to be on the ice or to participate in the post-skate autograph session. All money raised through this "Shoot for a Cure" event will benefit the Brandon's Defense Foundation (www.staystrongdoit.com).
Skate rental will also be available for $2 per pair.
