Elk & Elk Presents 2019 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 2019 event will take place on Friday, January 18, when the Blue Jackets host the Montreal Canadiens 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. All fans in attendance are encouraged to share their Military Night photos using the hashtag #CBJUSA.
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.
