Sea of pink for Friday's hockey game

Posted: Updated:

A sea of pink, on the ice and in the stands is what Tri-City Americans supporters will experience at tonight's 5th annual Pink Out Game.

The Americans are teaming up with the Tri-City Cancer Center. Tonight's proceeds will fund support services programs at the Cancer Center.

"The fans really get behind it. We were doing some presales on Thursday. They know what it's about. They expect it. They buy the T-shirts and really support it," Tom Cothran, Cancer Center Executive Director.

Cancer Center workers are hoping to bring in about $20,000.
