The sixth annual Pink in the Rink, presented by Presbyterian Hospital, will take place Saturday, Feb. 25, when the Checkers host the Oklahoma City Barons.
The goal of the evening is to raise awareness and funds for the fight against women’s related cancers, specifically breast cancer. The beneficiaries of the night are Carolina Breast Friends, Susan G. Komen and Presbyterian Hospital’s Buddy Kemp Cancer Support Center.
The players will wear specialty pink jerseys that will be auctioned off after the game to benefit the above-mentioned charities. In addition, there will be a giveaway of pink Checkers beanies to the first 2,500 ladies through the door and an honoring of breast cancer survivors. The ice will be lit up pink during player introductions.
Special $15 fundraising tickets are available with $6 going back to the respective charity. To purchase these tickets, please click here.
