After writing about the You Can Play pledge, I was honored to receive a very kind email from Don Zender and Doug Massey with Gay Hockey Ohio. They, and their D league team the Ohio Mayhem will be working with OSU to sponsor a Pride Night on Friday, 2/1 against Notre Dame that will see money being raised to benefit Camp Sunrise and Kaleidoscope Ohio. From what I understand, they will also be running some You Can Play PSAs during the game.
GHO is offering $10 tickets that include a pre-game reception and a post game skate with the team on the Value City ice, and it sounds like there will be a few more things that should be announced soon. You can purchase tickets here.
I realize I said that "Pride Night" shouldn't be a one-time thing, but we live in an imperfect world. I want to encourage you to check it out, grab tickets, and support some good causes while getting a solid hockey fix.
Plus, hey, I hear that T.J. Tynan kid is pretty good...
