BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – The Binghamton Senators announced today that the 2011 Face Off Against Cancer presented by Lourdes will take place on Saturday, April 2 as the B-Sens host the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at 7:05 p.m.
As part of the festivities, forward Corey Cowick and defenseman Eric Gryba have generously donated the opportunity for a pair of lucky fans to shave their heads post-game.
Beginning at 6 p.m., through the second intermission fans are encouraged to visit the Hair & Beyond (143 Robinson St., Binghamton) table on the main concourse to purchase raffle tickets. Each raffle ticket earns fans a chance to win the opportunity to join stylists from the salon in a special on-ice, post-game ceremony. Two winners will be drawn at random during the third period to assist the stylists in shaving off Cowick’s and Gryba’s hair post-game.
Tickets are $1 per ticket, $2 for three or $5 for an arm’s length (ten tickets). All money raised through the raffle will be donated to the local chapter of the American Cancer Society.
“Cancer is something that has affected all us in one way or another, whether you are a player, coach or fan. I myself have been directly affected as both my grandparents have passed away because of cancer.” explained Cowick.
“I feel with continued support and donations that one day having cancer won’t be a tragedy, but instead it will be just an obstacle that we overcome. With the raffle to shave our heads, I hope to raise funds to help bring us closer to the end cancer and also to have a little fun with some of the best fans in the American Hockey League!”
Also on Saturday, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society table will staffed this year by volunteer teens from the Jewish Community Center’s B'nai B'rith Youth Organization and will not only be providing information about services and support for blood cancer patients and families, but will also be raffling off a team autographed B-Sens hockey stick, a $25.00 gift card to Price Chopper and two “Light the Night” sling bags.  
The local non-profit A Room to Heal will also be hosting a table at the Saturday night event raffling off an authentic Ottawa Senators team signed jersey.  A Room to Heal, an all volunteer organization, has created healing environments for 36 children in the Binghamton community who are living with a serious medical condition.  
"We are so proud to be part of Face Off Against Cancer" again this year," says Linda Salomons, co-founder of A Room to Heal.  "Our community is incredibly generous and giving when it comes to supporting the devastation surrounding cancer.  So many of us have been affected in one way or another and we all share the common hope for a cure."
In the past five years that the B-Sens and Lourdes have teamed for the Face Off Against Cancer they have successfully raised nearly $60,000 for cancer research.
Game time is set for 7:05 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. Fans attending the game are encouraged to visit the various cancer awareness displays, meet the Relay for Life teams in attendance and visit the Traci’s Hope table that will be set up throughout the arena concourse. Tickets are $17.75 for side seating, $16.75 for end seating. Fans can purchase tickets at www.ticketmaster.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000 or in person at the Binghamton Senators’ executive office or the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena box office.
