The first 500 adults in the door will receive a free Stampede beanie.The players will wear special pink jerseys for the game as well. Fans can purchase raffle tickets during the game for a chance to win one of those jerseys. Whoever wins gets to meet the player who was wearing the jersey they won on the ice right after the game. Special t-shirts will even be available for purchase. All of the proceeds from the raffle and t-shirt sales will go to the American Cancer Society.
Fans are encouraged to bring their skates to skate on the ice with the players right after the game.
