When it comes to charity, the Phoenix Coyotes give more than just money. They give their time and efforts from the players to the front office. Fans also do their part by purchasing 50/50 raffle tickets at events at Jobing.com arena. Of course half the proceeds go to the winner who gets their lucky number drawn. The other half is split between the charity of the night as well as the Phoenix Coyotes charities fund.
The same day they were at Kyrene de las Lomas PTO reading to children.This was just December 21-22 and doesn’t even scratch the surface.
These are just the last two instances of how great it is to have a team who cares about more than just scoring goals. Their activities can be followed on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/PhoenixCoyotesCharities
There you can see Tyson Nash along with Howler and many others donating their time. Collecting money for Salvation Army and many, many other great causes.
Cheerleaders & Howler spent time with an amazing teacher from Don Mensendick school.
So next time you are at a game buy a $5, $10, or even $20 ticket for your chance to win. Trust me everyone wins when it’s all for charity. There has to be at least a few dozen acts of charity in the month of December alone when they don’t even have a league at the moment.

About the Author
Native of Arizona. I have four daughters to keep me humble. Them and my fiance Katrina are the loves of my life. Then it is all sports.
In 1976 I fell in love with sports. Phoenix Suns, Cincinnati Reds, and Dallas Cowboys were all my favorites as I watched them all make it to the championship.
Also in that year I saw my first Olympics. I became fascinated with anything USA.
Hockey was a big deal for me as well. We attended many Phoenix Roadrunner games. To be honest I couldn't wait for the hot dog and soda as well as a few goals from the home squad. Even rooted for the parent team the LA Kings. But the Miracle on Ice came at the right time for me. Team USA made hockey magical. Just like a great trick so much anticipation and intensity leading to a climatic puck crossing the line and the crowd going absolutely crazy.
