The Bellingham Blazers will host a “Pink the Rink” game this Saturday, October 29 at the Bellingham Sportsplex to bring further awareness to breast cancer. The puck drops at 7:35 p.m. The Blazers will take the ice wearing customized pink jerseys as they host the Lake Tahoe Icemen.
The Blazers will also hold both an online auction of the Blazers Pink Cancer Awareness jerseys and a live auction of one jersey during the first intermission of Saturday night’s game. Proceeds will be donated to the PeaceHealth St. Joseph Cancer Center.
Those wanting to bid on these jerseys can go to www.bellinghamblazers.com for information on online bidding. The auction will remain live through Monday, November 1, at 5:00 p.m. Those making the winning bid will receive a tax receipt for their support.
McEvoy Oil Company has generously supported this great event as the jersey sponsor of the customized cancer pink Blazer jerseys and Whatcom Educational Credit Union is serving as the sponsor of the customized game socks.
“The Blazers are extremely excited to establish this new tradition for our club and to assist in the fight against breast cancer,” said Blazers General Manager Lance Calloway. “In talking with players on our team recently they were excited as several indicated they have family members who have battled breast cancer.”
“If we are able to add to increasing the awareness and also help provide some funding to support the fight, this is something our organization is fully behind,” Calloway continued. “With the support from McEvoy Oil Company and Whatcom Educational Credit Union – and the awesome Blazer fans – we will be able to make a difference!”
