Breast Cancer Awareness Game – Pink Out the Rink
The PEI Rocket game Saturday night at the Charlottetown Civic Center is about more than the two points the Rocket and Sherbrooke Phoenix are playing for. The Atlantic Chapter of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation will also be a winner as it will receive a portion of the proceeds from the game.
The Rocket organization will be donating $5 from each ticket sold, to the cause, but the most unique part of the night is in the jerseys the home team will be wearing. In honour of those fighting breast cancer and those who have fought the disease in the past, the players will wear pink jerseys that will be given away as part of a raffle after the game. Proceeds from the raffle tickets are also going to the Foundation. To add to the atmosphere in the building, all fans are asked to dress in pink.
Rocket Vice-president of Operations, Trent Birt, says, “This is a special night for everyone in attendance and one we look forward to each year. I am sure everyone in the building, from the players to the fans, knows someone that has been affected by this awful disease. When our guys pull on their pink jerseys, they have extra motivation as they play in honour of these people. We play to win the two points every night but this Saturday night we are also playing in support of a great cause. I am confident that we will have a bigger than normal crowd as fans come out to share in this support!”
