It’s become an annual tradition as the Everett Silvertips team up with community partners to raise funds for the battle against breast cancer. Here’s everything you need to know…
The Everett Silvertips and our partners at Providence Regional Medical Center and the Safeway Foundation are proud to present Pink the Rink 2014, our sixth-annual breast cancer fundraiser, on Saturday, October 25 vs. the Seattle Thunderbirds. After raising over $315,000 in donations toward the local fight against breast cancer over the past five years, our goal is to top $100,000 in new donations during this years event.
Pink the Rink is a cooperative effort between the Silvertips, Providence Regional Cancer Partnership, Providence Comprehensive Breast Center and the Safeway Foundation to raise donations that fund free and low-cost breast cancer screenings for local women without insurance or the means to pay. By aiding with early detection, money raised from Pink the rink will ultimately help save lives in Snohomish County and the surrounding areas.
The game against the Thunderbirds on Saturday, October 25 will feature a variety of ways to contribute to the cause while also celebrating breast cancer survivors and remembering those lost to the disease. Were encouraging Silvertips fans to get in the spirit by dressing in pink for the game to show your support for the fight against breast cancer. The first 5,000 fans in attendance will receive a light-up pink glow stick courtesy of the Safeway Foundation and Providence Comprehensive Breast Center.
