WASHINGTON — 106.7 The Fan is proudly partnering with the Washington Capitals and Ellie’s Hats in their ongoing mission to donate hats to children battling cancer.
Ellie was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in the spring of 2013, before even entering kindergarten. That fall, she had lost most of her hair and was wearing hats to school every day, expressing her personality through her hat selection.
This served as the inspiration for Ellie’s Hats, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization which collects hats for thousands of brave kids going through cancer treatment with the hope that, by showing them others are thinking about them, it will help bring a little cheer into their day.
As Ellie’s Hats continues to grow, they are able to do more to support the families and locations treating children battling cancer.
A hat drive will be held at Verizon Center for the Capitals’ game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday, Oct. 30. Fans can drop off new hats at the Caps Care Community Relations table located at section 114. All fans who donate a hat will receive a limited edition Hockey Fights Cancer Braden Holtby Poster as well as a voucher for 10 percent off at the Verizon Center Team Store.
