The Blues Alumni will face off with the Chicago Blackhawks Alumni in Peoria on Wednesday, Jan. 15 to benefit tornado victims in Central Illinois.

The game will be held at the Peoria Civic Center at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. and tickets will be available for a $10 donation at the door.

On Nov. 17, 2013, an F-4 tornado destroyed or caused structural damage to more than 1,100 homes.

"The St. Louis Blues Alumni are proud to return to Peoria and join in the relief effort while taking part in what will prove to be an enjoyable evening of entertainment," said Director of Blues Alumni Terry Yake.

Former Blues expected to participate include Yake, Kelly Chase, John Wensink, Gino Cavallini, Steve Martins, Alex Brooks, Larry Patey, Reed Low and Jeff Brown. Bob Plager, Perry Turnbull and Tony Twist are expected to serve as coaches.

The game will feature a special pregame ceremony before the puck drops on two 30-minute periods. Fans will be able to get player autographs, participate in a 50/50 raffle and bid on Blues and Blackhawks jerseys in a silent auction. Proceeds from the event will be distributed by the Salvation Army Tornado Relief Fund.

The Peoria Civic Center is located at 201 SW Jefferson St, Peoria, IL 61602.
