DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings have teamed up with the American Red Cross to allow fans to support disaster relief efforts.

Money raised will go toward helping victims of disasters, including hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Those attending the Detroit Red Wings Training Camp on Sept. 16-17 at Centre Ice Arena in Traverse City can make donations via cash or checks to the American Red Cross.

Volunteers will be collecting donations in the upper level between both ice rinks.

Each $10 donation will earn an entry to win two tickets to the sold-out Red Wings regular season home opener against the Minnesota Wild on Oct. 5 at Little Caesars Arena.

At the home opener, the American Red Cross will join the Detroit Red Wings Foundation and Little Caesars Amateur Hockey League as a beneficiary of the Detroit Red Wings Foundation 50/50 raffle. A portion of the proceeds from raffle tickets sold will benefit disaster relief efforts.

“The recent devastation left behind by Hurricane Harvey, and impending harm expected from Hurricane Irma, affects many Red Wings fans across our country,” said Kevin Brown, director of community relations and the Detroit Red Wings Foundation. “Today, we are asking our partners and fans -- locally and abroad -- to join the entire Red Wings organization in supporting the recovery efforts as communities, families and individuals seek to rebuild after these devastating natural disasters.”
