Slightly belated: Wings invite fans to “Paint the Ice” at LCA on April 26

FYI, a little late:

… Fans Can Register to Paint a Personalized Message on a Portion of the Ice at Little Caesars Arena by Making a Donation to the Detroit Red Wings Foundation …

DETROIT – Building on the success of the first-ever Paint the Ice event at Joe Louis Arena last season, the Red Wings today announced details for the return of the widely-popular event set to take place for the first time at Little Caesars Arena on Thursday, April 26. By making a donation to benefit the Detroit Red Wings Foundation, fans can now register online to reserve a time slot to paint a personal message on a section of the ice at the state-of-the-art Little Caesars Arena.

Participants can paint their personalized message on the ice surface by registering for a 30-minute time slot on Thursday, April 26 starting at 3:00 p.m. and concluding at 8:00 p.m. The Red Wings will provide paint and paintbrushes for all attendees, and complimentary parking in the Little Caesars Arena Garage is included with the donation. Participants are encouraged to take personal photos of their messages and designs with cameras and cell phones following each session.

“The Detroit Red Wings Foundation is excited to conclude the Inaugural Season at Little Caesars Arena with an event the entire family can enjoy,” said Kevin Brown, Director of Community Relations & Detroit Red Wings Foundation. “The Paint the Ice event provides a unique, family-friendly opportunity for fans of all ages to visit Little Caesars Arena, step out on the same ice surface as their favorite Red Wings players, and leave behind a painted message – all while supporting a great cause.”

The minimum donation for adults and children ages 11 and older is $23 per person. Participants under 11-years-old are $10 each, while children under 2-years-old are free.

An extremely limited number of spots are available for the Paint the Ice event. Each 30-minute time slot is limited to 150 participants. Specific areas of the ice cannot be guaranteed and painting locations will be on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the event. All participants are encouraged to wear clothing and shoes suitable for the event.
