Lightning charity auction



Here is the announcement from the team:

The Tampa Bay Lightning will host the Score For Kids Charity Auction as they take on the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, November 19 at the St. Pete Times Forum. The auction will run from 7-10 p.m. or until the conclusion of the game. Fans can tune in to CW44 to catch all the action, as well as participate in the event. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Tampa General Hospital’s Children’s Medical Center.

Among the most notable items up for auction is an all-inclusive trip to the 2012 NHL Winter Classic in Philadelphia on January 2, which includes tickets to the game, hotel accommodations and round-trip airfare courtesy of Southwest Airlines. Other prizes up for bid include an all-inclusive trip to the 2012 NHL All-Star game in Ottawa on January 29, and a dinner for four with Lightning General Manager Steve Yzerman and Tampa Bay Storm President Derrick Brooks at Mise en Place. In addition, fans may bid on a foursome of golf with a Lightning player at Saddlebrook, as well as four passes to the organization’s annual Glitz & Sticks charity event. Lastly, participants will have an opportunity to win a New Year’s Eve bash at the Times Forum, featuring 10 tickets in the PNC Bank Club for the Lightning home game on December 31 versus the division-rival Carolina Hurricanes and hotel accommodations for all 10 guests at The Embassy Suites Downtown.

Additionally, 50 Lightning Alumni signed pucks will be on sale for $25 apiece, limited to one per household. Each puck will feature the autographs of two-time All-Star Brian Bradley and 2004 Lightning Stanley Cup champions Dave Andreychuk, Chris Dingman and Stan Neckar. By purchasing a puck, fans will be entered in the grand prize drawing for the Andrea Bocelli Night Out, valued at $900, which includes a one-night stay at The Embassy Suites Downtown on the evening of December 4.

Fans may bid on these items only by calling 813-301-6600. There will also be continuous and constant updates on the auction throughout the night during the CW44 broadcast as well as the Lightning radio broadcast on AM 620 WDAE.
