WINTERHAWKS’ PINK THE RINK GAME TO FEATURE PERSONALIZED PUCKS
(ISN) – The Portland Winterhawks and Compass Oncology are teaming up to host Pink the Rink on Saturday, November 1 against the Kelowna Rockets at the Moda Center to help raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research.
As part of the fundraising efforts fans can purchase special commemorative pucks that will be used during the game. Each puck will be inscribed with the name of a loved one affected by breast cancer. The fans who purchase these special pucks will also receive a second, non-game used puck also inscribed with the name of the loved one.
Forty of these one-of-a-kind pucks will be available for $50 each, and can be purchased by going to Winterhawks.com/pink.
There will also be an additional 100 limited edition Compass Oncology Pink the Rink pucks available the night of the game for $20 each. Proceeds from sales of the pucks will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Oregon and Southwest Washington.
“The personalized pucks are a great way for our fans to honor a loved one who’s faced a battle with breast cancer,” said Portland Winterhawks President Doug Piper. “This is a unique way to help raise funds to fight a deadly disease, and honor those who have faced it themselves.”
“This is our second year partnering with the Winterhawks to support breast cancer education and help raise funds for organizations like Komen who do so much for those living with breast cancer,” said Dr. Lucy Langer, medical oncologist, Compass Practice President and Director of the Compass Genetic Risk Evaluation and Testing Program. “We look forward to a great turnout for the cause.”
Compass Oncology will have a table outside section A20 that night, with game-worn jerseys, team-signed sticks, autographed photos as well as the pucks available for sale, with all proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Oregon and Southwest Washington.
