The Senators in Your Community From Dec. 12 to Dec. 18

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 12, 2008) - The Ottawa Senators' year-long commitment to community outreach programs throughout the National Capital Region continues this month. The following is a look at the club's community schedule from Friday, Dec. 12, to Thursday, Dec. 18.

Spartacat appearances

Spartacat, the Senators' ambassador of fun, will attend Noel pour tous at the Gatineau Intrepides game on Friday, Dec. 12, at 7:30 p.m. at the Baribeau Arena (231 Magnus St. East). This fundraiser will benefit Entraide-Famille de l'Outaouais, and fans are invited to bring non-perishable food items and stuffed animals.

Minor hockey intermission activities

On Saturday, Dec. 13, 10 peewee hockey players from the Smiths Falls and the Stittsville minor hockey associations (five from each) will take part in the GM Breakaway Relay, an on-ice intermission activity at Scotiabank Place during the Ottawa Senators game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Children from CHEO attend an Ottawa Senators game

The National Hockey League Officials Association (NHLOA) launched the Zebras Care Program in September 2007. In the quest to bring joy to children across North America and to grow the great game of hockey, the association formed this program with the hope of providing underprivileged and sick children and opportunity to meet NHLOA members and to attend a National Hockey League game in person.

With tickets provided by the Senators, three children from CHEO and their guests will attend the Senators game against the Atlanta Thrashers on Tuesday, Dec. 16, and meet with the on-ice NHL officials through the NHLOA's Zebras Care Program.

Senators president and CEO attends Hot Seat event

On Friday, Dec. 12, Senators president and CEO Roy Mlakar will attend the Kanata Sports Club Hot Seat from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. The event takes place at the Kanata Sports Club (10 McKitrick Dr.).

The Kanata Sports Club Hot Seat is a weekly event for club members and involves sports figures answering questions from those in attendance. An autograph session follows the one-hour talk, which is hosted by Mark Papousek from Oldies 1310 radio.

Sens Foundation president participates in 24h of Tremblant

Danielle Robinson, president of the the Sens Foundation, along with 24h of Tremblant ambassadors Laurie Graham (olympic skier), Erin Phillips (wife of defenceman Chris Phillips) and Leanne Liang (A-Morning) will be at the Mont-Tremblant Resort in Quebec from Dec. 12 to 14 for the eighth annual 24h of Tremblant - a ski-a-thon fundraiser for the benefit of sick and underprivileged children.
