Petes raise over $88,000 in 11th Annual Pink in the Rink Game

Peterborough Petes

 

Peterborough, Ont. – The eleventh annual Pink in the Rink game took place at the Peterborough Memorial Centre on Saturday night. The Peterborough Petes, in association with the Canadian Cancer Society, are pleased to announce that the campaign raised $88,194.72, bringing the eleven-year total to nearly $790,000 with more donations expected in the coming days. The Petes ended a five-game skid with a 4-1 victory over the rival Oshawa Generals in front of 3,816 fans.

Petes players wore special Pink in the Rink fundraising sweaters, which were sold in a post-game live jersey auction. Other fundraising initiatives at the game included a chuck-a-ball, silent auction, and bucket pass, along with t-shirt sales and online fundraiser.

Highlights of Saturday’s fundraiser included Nick Robertson’s game-worn jersey selling for $1,600, and an autographed John Tavares Toronto Maple Leafs jersey raising $600 in the silent auction.

Petes alumni Mike Martone (1994-98) and Ian Armstrong (1982-85) were the honourary co-chairs.
