Not only is tonight's Whitecaps game an MSU / U of M Rivalry night, it's also a fantastic opportunity for people to donate to two amazing charities.  During the game tonight, you can help the Michael Sadler Foundation and The ChadTough Foundation.

While you are at the game tonight you can play the 50/50 Raffle and the proceeds from the raffle will go to both of the foundations.

Team Tommy Army Strong will be at the game as an official partner of the ChadTough Foundation. Both Chad and Tommy were just five years old when they passed away from DIPG. The Ruddy family represents the ChadTough Foundation in West Michigan.

The mission of The ChadTough Foundation is to fund research and raise awareness for Pediatric Brain Tumors with an emphasis on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).

The mission of the Michael Sadler Foundation is to develop and support programs and awards that emphasize the combination of academic excellence, athletic achievement, character strength and leadership in student-athletes.

Tonight's game starts at 7:05 PM and gates open at 6:00 PM.  You can get more information about the game as well as the charities on the Whitecaps Facebook page.
