Remember, Thursday is the Tampa Bay Lightning's Cut For A Cure event to benefit cancer research
Here is the announcement from the team:
The Tampa Bay Lightning, Vincent Lecavalier Foundation and Pediatric Cancer Foundation have teamed up to offer fans throughout the Bay Area the chance to participate in a charity auction in the days leading up to the 2011 Bright House Networks ‘Cut For A Cure’ event, presented by Carrabba’s Italian Grill, which will be held on Thursday, April 7 at the Pepin Hospitality Centre at 5:30 p.m.
Lightning players Vincent Lecavalier, Mike Smith, Martin St. Louis, Ryan Malone, Victor Hedman, Teddy Purcell and Nate Thompson will be going ALL IN for charity by shaving their heads at this year’s event. Fans are encouraged to visit www.pcfcutforacure.org to place a general donation or to bid on the chance to shave the Lightning players’ heads by clicking on “Bid Now To Shave A Head.” The auction will close on Wednesday, April 6 at 9 p.m.
Each Lightning player has a minimum bid, but fans may also “Buy It Now” for $5,000. Each bidder will be entered into a chance drawing to win two tickets to one first-round Lightning home playoff game, while the lucky winner who places the highest bid will receive two tickets to Thursday’s ‘Cut For A Cure’ fundraiser, complimentary food and beverage at the event and two ‘Cut For A Cure’ hats.
