Hershey Bears Host Hockey Fights Cancer Game
Club to wear lavender-accented jerseys that will be auctioned to benefit great causes
The Hershey Bears will host Hockey Fights Cancer™ Night on Sunday, Nov. 21 as the Bears take the ice versus the Charlotte Checkers at 5 p.m. Joining the efforts of the National Hockey League, Hockey Fights Cancer unites the hockey community in support of cancer patients and their families. When the Bears take the ice Sunday, the club will trade in Chocolate and White jerseys for Hockey Fights Cancer-themed jerseys that feature lavender accents.
The special jerseys will be auctioned postgame. The Bears donate a portion of the sale of all jersey auctions to a number of area nonprofit organizations as part of its community-focused Hershey Bears Cares initiative. Beneficiaries for the 2021-2022 season are Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Hospice of Central PA, Lebanon County Library System, and Dauphin County Library System. Due to COVID-19 protocols, a meet and greet with players will not be available following the auction, but the jerseys will be autographed, and payment must be made via credit card.
