This Saturday, October 30, the Blues are hosting “Power Play for the United Way,” an annual event to raise money for the United Way of Greater St. Louis. This even offers deeply discounted tickets for the game, and $5 from each ticket sold goes back to the United Way. Last year, the Blues gave over $75,000 to the United Way (For more on how your money helps the United Way help others see below) .

Already have tickets to the game? The Blues will be featuring a silent auction on Halloween themed baskets put together by some of the players. They seem to put these baskets together at all of the major holiday games. In past auctions, these baskets have featured items like the player’s favorite candy, gift cards, stuffed animals, and iPods. These baskets will include “a player autographed Halloween puck, a scary movie DVD, Blues tickets, Halloween candy and a unique autographed item” and were put together by T.J. Oshie, Alexander Steen, David Perron, David Backes, and Jaroslav Halak. The auction will also include different autographed items from other team members. In addition, the Blues will be having their annual “Halloween Puck Patch” Saturday night. There will be a limited number of Halloween themed pucks autographed by the team. These pucks are $25 each and usually go fast, so if you are interested in getting one be sure to get your hands on one early. The Puck Patch proceeds go back to the 14 Fund. **I had previously written that these were $20 each, sorry for the mistake**
