Holiday Greetings to everyone out there! The NHLFA just sent out this press release that probably won't get much attention until Wednesday:
We are pleased to announced an opportunity for two fans to bid and win opportunities to be public relations assistants at the 2008 NHL All Star Game weekend in Atlanta held January 25-27. Two fans will help the NHL's public relations department and assist the game's best players as they fulfill media availability. The two fans will also spend some quality, private time with the Stanley Cup.
Half of the proceeds from the auction will be given to the charity Hockey Fights Cancer. The other half of the proceeds will go to the NHLFA.
The NHL has stepped up and presented us with a wonderful opportunity for two fans to get up close to the game's best players. It will be a very memorable weekend for two lucky fans.
The online auction begins on December 25, 2007 and concludes January 12, 2008 at 21:00 hrs (ET). Please (join us on) www.nhlfa.com to bid on these opportunities.
A merry opportunity for two merry causes.
Merry Christmas everyone.
