JOSH HARDING BOBBLEHEAD NIGHT ON FRIDAY
Josh will be at Friday’s game and take part in a ceremonial faceoff to start the evening. He will then be available to sign autographs during the first intermission.
Bobbleheads will be available for a minimum $5 donation (maximum two per person) to Josh’s charity, Harding’s Hope, in the northwest corner of the concourse. Doors for Friday’s game open at 6 p.m. and quantities are limited.
Harding's Hope raises awareness about multiple sclerosis (MS) and funds to support people living with MS. The charity is focused on supporting individuals and families living with MS who are struggling with the costs of treating the disease.
