    Pink in the Rink- February 3, 2018

    What an amazing event that raised over $88,500 for women's cancer research!  It was a packed night at the Memorial Centre as the Petes took on the Oshawa Generals. Honourary chairs Gary & Pete Dalliday and Tori Sotiriadis dropped the puck at centre ice to start the game along with event sponsors Alf Curtis Home Improvement, Andrew Pyle from The Pyle Group and Kelsey's & Montana's. The Petes wore special jerseys with names of many who are battling cancer or have lost their life to cancer.  The emotional night brought the community together in a show of solidarity for the 9th Pink in the Rink which now has exceeded raising over $615,000.
