PINK THE RINK
FEBRUARY 20, 2015, THE FAITHFUL FIGHT
Brought to you by Cornell Men's Hockey and GOPiNK, Pink the Rink seeks to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer programs of the Cancer Resource Center of the Finger Lakes leading up to their game against RPI on February 20, 2015. Our goal is to fully "pink" the rink by having ALL ticketholders and players wear pink for this annual occasion!
But before that, student groups at Cornell will compete to raise the most money for this incredible cause! The winning group will receive:
- 15 FREE tickets to the hockey game
- Merchandise for all who attend the game (Pink the Rink Hats & T-Shirts)
- Post-game AFTER PARTY sponsored by Moonies!! ($200 bar tab)
Groups will have from Wednesday, February 4th until Thursday, February 19th at 11:59PM to raise the funds, and may do so in any way they see fit. Only funds raised through their crowdrise page will go towards their final total for the competition. The winning group will also be advertised and promoted at the game to honor their achievement!
In anticipation of the game, look out for Pink the Rink tables all over campus where you can make a donation and receive a shirt or hat, and learn more about the cause and the team making this possible. 100% of the funds raised will be donated to the Cancer Resource Center, and will go on to support:
- The CRC weekly Women's Cancer Support Group
- The CRC boutique which provides free wigs to anyone who has lost their hair due to cancer
- The one-to-one assistance program through which they meet individually with individuals with cancer to answer questions, suggest resources, and share what they've learned from others
- The "Angel Fund" through which they provide direct cash assistance to help with medication co-pays, transportation, and other immediate needs
Additionally, on the night of the game, the men's specialty Pink the Rink Jerseys will be put up for a silent, online auction, that will continue until Thursday, February 26 at 12:00pm. More information on this auction will come soon.
We owe a huge thank-you to our sponsors; The Cornell Women's Resource Center, Tompkins County Trust, Matco Norca, GOPiNK, and many others who made this event possible.

**In this fundraiser, the groups of Cornell Men's Hockey and Cancer Resource Center Supporters will not be competing, therefore leaving it open to competition solely among student groups on campus.
