    9th Annual Pink in the Rink - Saturday February 3, 2018

    Watch the Oshawa Generals take on the Peterborough Pete's at Pink in the Rink! The Canadian Cancer Society is excited to be working together with the Peterborough Pete's to make an impact against women's cancers. Pink in the Rink 2018 will focus on fundraising for cancer research including ovarian, cervical, uterine and breast cancer.
    Over the past 8 years, Pink in the Rink has raised over $529,000. The goal for the 2018 event is $60,000 and with the help of this great community we can help save the lives of those we hold close to our hearts...our mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, wives and friends.

    Over the past nine years we have been fortunate to have amazing honorary chairs who have joined us by not only raising money but by sharing their personal stories to help us raise awareness for the event. This year is no different with 3 local community members agreeing to be part of Pink in the Rink. Thank you to Gary and Pete Dalliday, as well as Victoria Sotoriadis for joining us this year as our honorary chairs.

    Once again we are giving the community the opportunity to purchase names to go on the game worn jerseys in honour of a loved ones who have survived or lost their battle with cancer, until Wednesday November 22, 2017. The names, which are available for $20, will be sold online and at the live auction on event night.

    Fill in the Jersey Name Form and hand it in at the Canadian Cancer Society office at 111 Simcoe St N, Unit 201 or call 905-434-6405. Special edition t-shirts with the jersey names are also available for $20 each.

    Tickets for the February 3rd Pink in the Rink game are available at the Cancer Society office for $20 each and $7 will go towards Pink in the Rink. For more ticket information, call 1-800-463-0432.

    The event website - www.cancer.ca/pinkintherink - will be live mid-November 2017.
