ELMIRA, N.Y. - Arnot Health and the Elmira Jackals, along with the Finger Lakes Donor Recovery Network, the Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation, the Albany Lions Eye Bank and CORE are hosting Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Night at the First Arena on Saturday, Feb. 22. A full night of activity is planned.

Donor Mom, Holly Campbell, will kick off the events by singing the National Anthem, followed by a special puck drop featuring a donor family and person awaiting transplant.

When the Jackals take the ice, they will be wearing special Donate Life jerseys as they battle the Wheeling Nailers.

During the first and second intermissions, Donate Life Frisbees will be thrown from the ice into the stands by Blade and Donate Life volunteers.

The Donate Life table will feature commemorative hockey pucks and T-shirts sporting the contest-winning design of local Addison Middle School 7th grade student, Piper Dean. Throughout the evening there will be door prizes awarded including a Family 4-Pack to the April 13th Buffalo Sabres vs. New York Islanders game and Jackals autographed items. Free door prize entry tickets can be picked up at the Donate Life table in the concourse.

After the game, fans can bid on their favorite player's Donate Life jersey. Fans who want to support the cause without bidding on a jersey can simply purchase a ticket to the game. Tickets are available at the First Arena box office or by calling 607-733-2237.
