Elk & Elk Presents 2020 Columbus Blue Jackets Military Appreciation Night
Elk & Elk is proud to once again join Columbus Blue Jackets in saluting those who have served or are currently serving in the nation’s armed forces as the presenting sponsor of the team’s annual Military Appreciation Night. The 2020 event will take place on Thursday, January 16, when the Blue Jackets host the Carolina Hurricanes at Nationwide Arena. The game begins at 7 p.m.
Active and retired personnel representing a variety of local military organizations will be honored at the game. The evening features a variety of themed activities, including a ceremonial puck drop, fundraisers, and tributes to show our support and gratitude. The first 10,000 fans will receive a Blue Jackets branded camouflage-style hat courtsey of Elk & Elk.
Personal Care Items Collection for USO Lounges
Donations of personal care items and snacks will be collected by USO volunteers on the Front St. and McConnell Blvd. plazas outside arena entrances before the game. The donations will help USO stock Support Lounges across Central Ohio. Fans who donate will receive a voucher for one free ticket to an upcoming home game. Visit CBJ’s Military Appreciation Night page to view the full list of qualifying donation items.
Camouflage Jersey Raffle & Auction
As a way to show support and gratitude for all active and retired service members, the Blue Jackets players will wear specially designed camouflage-style jerseys during pregame warmups on Military Appreciation Night.
