The six lucky winners will also meet Shane Doan and Max Domi after the game.

Donations can be made by calling 623-266-9645 on Saturday, Jan. 23 from 5:30 p.m. through the end of the game. Phone calls will be answered by Coyotes President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc, Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith, Coyotes players' wives and Coyotes alumni.
