LIGHTNING INTRODUCE 'MAKING SAVES, SAVING LIVES' PROGRAM
The Tampa Bay Lightning and the Lightning Foundation today introduced the 'Making Saves, Saving Lives' program which will donate money for every save by Marc Denis and the Lightning goaltenders in October to the Don & Erika Wallace Comprehensive Breast Program at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Lightning and Lightning Foundation are now accepting pledges for each save Denis and the Lightning goaltenders make during the opening month of the season. To make a pledge fans should log on to www.tampabaylightning.com/makingsaves. The Lightning Foundation is also taking pledges during all home games for the entire month, as well as one-time contributions.
Last season Lightning goaltenders made an average of 23 saves per game during the first month of the season. All donations and pledges will go directly to the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center to support breast cancer research.
Tampa Bay will play seven home games in the month of October: October 7 vs. Boston; October 9 vs. Atlanta; October 14 vs. Florida; October 16 vs. Carolina; October 19 vs. Philadelphia; October 26 vs. Carolina; October 29 vs. San Jose.
All pledges and donations must be received prior to November 1, 2006. For more information call Nancy Crane at 813.301.6590.
