Last weekend, Ken Daniels and Fox Sports Detroit revealed that the Red Wings are taking part in a fundraiser for the family of Matt Sorisho this Wednesday, November 20th at Compwuare Arena in Plymouth (from 6-10 PM), and today, the Red Wings' community relations department fleshed out the team's participation. Per DetroitRedWings.com's Christy Hammond:

This event will raise money for medical, home modification and mobility equipment expenses that Matt Sorisho, a senior at Detroit Catholic Central High School, faces after suffering a serious injury during a hockey tournament that left him with life-changing spinal cord injuries, which are estimated to be over $500,000 in the first year.

Tickets are still available to the event for $100 and can be purchased online by visiting http://bidpal.net/matt18 The e.vent will feature a large assortment of auction items, including packages donated by the Red Wings:

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
