Stanley Cup champion and Canadian Olympic gold medalist Rob Blake will return to the Ice Arena Saturday, Nov. 6, to support the "Bring Back the Glory Campaign."
Blake, an All-American defenseman for the Falcons from 1987-90, is the guest of honor at a fundraising reception hosted by the "Bring Back the Glory" campaign before BGSU's hockey game against Notre Dame.
Everyone is invited to the 5 p.m. reception at Mileti Alumni Center. Tickets are $25 or $100 per person. The $100 ticket includes a $75 tax-deductible gift to the "Bring Back the Glory" campaign, an autographed photo of Blake and recognition of your donation at the event. Launched in October 2009, the campaign's goal is $5 million to endow scholarships and enhance the Ice Arena.
Blake will also be honored at the game. Faceoff is at 7:05 p.m. Joining Blake will be Mike "Doc" Emrick, play-by-play commentator for the NHL on NBC, and BGSU alumnus. Emrick will emcee the fundraiser and introduce Blake on the ice prior to the game.
