CASTLETON, Vt. – The Castleton University women's ice hockey program has once again teamed up with the Rutland Regional Medical Center for the eighth consecutive year to raise awareness and funding for breast cancer research with the annual "Pink the Rink" event held on Friday, February 10.
The event will take place when the Spartans host Southern Maine at Spartan Arena on Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. Throughout the rich history of the event, Castleton has helped raise over $50,000 and looks to continue playing its part in the battle against cancer.
Castleton will gear up for the game wearing a special collectors'-edition pink jersey, which will be sold via an online auction and can be found at the link below. The auction will run from January 25 through February 9 at 9 p.m., with all proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Program at RRMC. Fans have the opportunity to bid on the game-worn jerseys, or purchase a jersey outright for $250. Click the link below to begin the process now.
In addition to the jersey auction, the team will be raffling off a variety of items at the game, including a quilt and gift baskets, with all proceeds going to the Foley Cancer Center. Raffle tickets will be $5 apiece or five for $20.
