LAS VEGAS (December 8, 2023) – Credit One Bank, a leading financial institution and pillar in the Las Vegas community, once again partnered with Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada to surprise two new families with tickets and VIP treatment for the Vegas Golden Knights vs. Arizona Coyotes game on Saturday, November 25. In addition to receiving their own suite for the game, both families got to visit The Fortress before the puck dropped and received a special visit from the Knights’ mascot, Chance.
The curated experience is part of Credit One Bank’s ongoing Number One Fan program, which provides exclusive sports-related adventures to people dealing with hardships and adversity. Both families were also featured on the jumbotron as part of the Knights’ Hockey Fights Cancer night, an annual league-wide initiative where teams show their support for various cancer-related organizations.
“Working once again with Candlelighters has established a new milestone for our Number One Fan program,” said Christina Ortiz, Sponsorships Manager at Credit One Bank. “It’s also a reminder of the vital services they provide to young cancer survivors. We’re grateful for their positive impact on our community and proud to help contribute to their mission.”
