November 1st marks the first day of Movember, an event where men across the globe grow mustaches to raise money to fight prostate cancer. Hockey players have been among the most avid supporters of the charity, raising thousands for research and awareness.
Almost the entire Hershey Bears team is participating this year, and some players are trying to one up each other. After Boyd Kane’s wife offered a signed team photo for any person donating $25 or more, Caps prospect Tomas Kundratek responded with his own overture.
No signed jersey or stick. Too rote. Instead, Kundratek is offering to take the fan who donates the most money out to dinner at the finest establishment in Hershey: Houlihan’s! If you’re nice, he might let you order an appetizer.

How cool is that?
This is why hockey players are the best. They’re down-to-earth people and have tastes like the rest of us. I can’t imagine LeBron or Ben Roethlisberger doing something like this. Kudos to Tomas for willing to hang out with a fan for a good cause.
Now go donate! He deserves your money.
