Dater’s Daily: Give To Good Cause, Get Two Free Avalanche Preseason Tix



Kroenke Avalanche

A good post-Labor Day Weekend Tuesday to all. Another scorcher today here in Thornton, might hit triple digits they say. Our AC is working again, but there is concern here at Chez Dater about an aging furnace. Let’s do some Avalanche and NHL notes and links, starting with how to give to a good cause – and also get yourself a voucher for two free Avalanche preseason tickets as a thank-you:

  • The 11th annual GiveSports equipment drive, to benefit A Precious Child organization, is not far away – Sept. 24 – and this year Kroenke Sports is giving a voucher to those who donate for two free tickets to an Avalanche preseason game, while supplies last. More details on this great cause here (
  • The late Jessica Redfield Ghawi is the inspiration for the annual equipment drive, something she started herself. For more on who she was, here’s something I wrote on my friend in 2012 for Sports Illustrated (
