Black Tie Blue Jackets preview

With less than a week until the eighth annual Black Tie Blue Jackets Style Show, put on by the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation, the Blue Jackets community is excited to celebrate its heroes and raise money for the fight against pediatric cancer. The show will take place Tues., Feb. 25 at center ice in Nationwide Arena.

If you are thinking about attending, have tickets already or are just curious about the Black Tie Style Show, we've answered a few questions about what to expect from this year's "Capturing Moments" themed event.

Who are the participants in the Style Show?
The Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation has invited several "heroes," or pediatric cancer patients and survivors, to walk alongside Columbus Blue Jackets players (as well as the players' families) in the Style Show. The Style Show recognizes the heroes for their courageous fight against cancer.

Complementary valet parking is available on Nationwide Blvd. All attendees should enter through the McConnell St. entrance at the corner of Nationwide and McConnell.
