The Fourth Annual Chicago Wolves, Salvation Army Red Kettle Game

Nov 22, 2022

The Salvation Army, Chicago Wolves partnership hit an all-time high Saturday, November 19th, at the Allstate Arena in front of more than 8,000 excited fans.

Major Caleb Senn, General Secretary & Chicago Area Commander, dropped the puck to kick off the ceremonies on a cold, blistery night.

Salvation Army mascots, Captain Kettle and Captain Shield were on hand to welcome all the youngsters into the Arena, and Salvation Army brass bands from Oak Brook Terrace and Norridge filled the concourse with the sounds of Christmas. Salvation Army employees also had games and giveaways for all the fans.

Of course, the iconic Salvation Army Red Kettles were visible at every turn, with Wolves players’ wives and girlfriends taking turns ringing the bells.

A lot of money was raised at the game, helping fund all the programs The Salvation Army does year-round. Most of the donations collected Saturday will go towards food pantries, rent/utility assistance, and children’s programs.

On the ice, it was a tight game. Unfortunately, the Rockford IceHogs sent the fans home on a sour note, putting the game-winner in the back of the net with 11 seconds left in overtime.
