The American's Hit the Pink Ice for Breast Cancer Awareness

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-  Pink night is back to hit the ice tonight at the Toyota Center for the American's 8th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Hockey Game.

Everything was pink Friday night from pink hockey pucks to pink game jersey's and T-shirts with all profits and donations going to the Tri-Cities Cancer Center.

It didn't stop there, donated pink inspired gift baskets were up for auction, plus chuck-a-puck to win an I-pad.

The Tri-Cities Cancer Center said this event usually brings in around $20,000 to the foundation for patient services that stay local.

The Tri-Cities Cancer Center Director of Business Development, Michael Novakovich said, "There's a whole lot that goes into what tonight is going to fund and it's through donations like this where we're able to do community education, a lot of outreach and truly be there as the community resource for the tri-cities as it relates to cancer care."

For the first time, anyone can bid on a rookie's game-worn breast cancer awareness jersey from now until Thursday, February 28th.
