Red Wings and good causes
The Red Wings support of two October community initiatives will continue this Monday, when Dallas Drake and Brian Rafalski sign autographs for the team’s smoke detector collection and the first Breast Cancer Awareness Night. Drake and Rafalski will appear from 6-8 p.m. at Hockeytown Authentics in Troy.
Fans who donate a new smoke detector with batteries will receive one autograph from Drake. Together with local fire departments and law enforcement agencies, all detectors will be donated to low-income residents throughout Metro Detroit. The signing will conclude this year’s smoke detector collection which also took place at three home games earlier this month when fans generously donated 800 detectors. Spokesman Henrik Zetterberg will match the total of all detectors collected with a personal donation.
Rafalski will sign autographs for fans who make a monetary donation to the Red Wings Breast Cancer Awareness Program (minimum donation of $5 requested). The team will host its first Breast Cancer Awareness Night on Friday, October 26 when the Wings take on the San Jose Sharks. All proceeds will benefit local families battling breast cancer.
Wristbands for Monday’s autograph signing will be issued at Hockeytown Authentics beginning at 10 a.m. October 22. A maximum of 500 wristbands will be handed out prior to 6 p.m. For more information, please call Hockeytown Authentics at (248) 680-0965. Hockeytown Authentics is located at 1845 E. Big Beaver on the Northwest corner of Big Beaver and John R in Troy.

The $9 ticket for games in November will go on sale at 10 a.m. this Saturday, October 20 at the Joe Louis Arena Box Office.
