Waxhaw, NC -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/03/2014 -- In an effort to raise awareness for Neuroblastoma, a cancerous tumor developed in the nerve tissue, The Isabella Santos Foundation is pleased to announce they are hosting a charity night at the Charlotte Checkers hockey game, an affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes. The charity game is Friday, January 24 at 7 pm and those who attend will have the chance to participate in various raffles, signed hockey memorabilia, and meet players. Tickets cost just $15 and a portion of all proceeds will benefit The Isabella Santos Foundation and pediatric cancer research.
Isabella Santos was seven years old when she lost her five-year battle with Neuroblastoma and the foundation was formed in her honor. They host a number of events and benefits each year in her name, including 5k runs and numerous blood drives. Their goal is to reach a point where there is no more cancer, a vision that young Isabella Santos held.
The hockey game serves as the perfect time to get the family together for a fun-filled evening that helps benefit a great cause. Sit back to watch non-stop hockey action and take part in meet-and-greets during an exclusive autograph session that puts a smile on a child’s face. For a family oriented Friday night that helps raise awareness for Neuroblastoma and pediatric cancers, enjoy a night out at the Charlotte Checkers game.
Tickets can be purchased by contacting a representative of the foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visiting Ticket Master at this link. To receive the special price of $15, those interested in attending must enter the coupon code ISABELLA when purchasing through Ticket Master.
