Help needed contacting Oilers to attend cancer bake sale

Hey everyone,

I am a diehard Oilers fan and I live in California after having lived in Edmonton from 2001-2008. My best friend lives in Edmonton and her mom was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer and is undergoing evasive chemotherapy. Her toddler son has been in and out of the Stollery's hospital since he was born. They are going through some very rough times right now. Her sister/sister's best friend and daughter are all shaving their heads at the Hair Masscure next week to raise money for Stollery's, Ronald McDonald House and Make a Wish Foundation. My best friend is having a bake sale @ her work in Edmonton for 5 hours on the 13th. They have raised over 6,500 already but it would mean the world to them if someone from the Oilers (player, staff, etc) could stop by for even a few minutes to show their support. It would brighten up their lives to be quite honest and show support to them for everything they are dealing with.

My question is, is there a best person to contact (direct email, etc) to ask if this is at all possible. I realize they are all very busy and have tons of charity events to do, etc but like I said it would mean the world to the family if someone could attend the bake sale on the 13th (anyone from the organization) @ her work office for even a few minutes. Thanks for taking the time to read this and any help you have would be appreciated.

Contact their community relations people. Go to the Oilers website and click contact us at the bottom of the page. There will be a form to fill out, click that you want it sent to the Oilers Community Foundation. They will usually get back to you within a few days. I've worked with them before, they are good people.

Contact the Oilers. Oilers Director of Public Relations, JJ Hebert.

Or the Oilers Community Foundation.

Definitely the Oilers Community Foundation, don't waste your time going anywhere else. They are the facilitators of this sort of thing.

Is the bake sale located at her place of work, or is it in a public place where people can stop in?

It's located in the Telus building downtown this Thursday from 11-4 pm. Not sure if it is public or just employees, will double check.

And I sent the email, waiting to hear back from the OCF.

I have a friend who works in the Oilers office. PM me if I can be of help. She is not a community-relations person but knows everyone.

But I do want to wish you and your friend the best of luck

I had a Ryan Whitney's Fresh Turnovers joke ready, but good luck with the bake sale.

OF#81, PM received and email sent to my friend. I expect to hear back today, with some response. It may be only that she has passed it along to Community Relations. This date is in February, correct? PM me the contact info so that I can pass it along if this works out. God bless; this is a tough thing.
