Golden Hawks to wear pink in support of cancer research

BELLEVILLE – The Trenton Golden Hawks [2] will hold their second Pink in the Rink [3] night when they take on the Kingston Voyageurs [4] Feb. 13.

Pink in the Rink is a one-night event in which the hosting team wears pink jerseys. During the game, fans will be able to place bids on jerseys worn that night. After the game, Trenton players will be autographing their jerseys and will pose for pictures with the highest bidders.

This year’s event will look to top last year’s Pink in the Rink night that raised over $11,000. All of the money raised by the team, the fans and the sponsors will go directly to the Canadian Cancer Society [5].

“None of the proceeds from this particular game go towards our team,” said Golden Hawks assistant general manager and business director John McDonald.

Last year’s game drew roughly 800 people to the Duncan McDonald Memorial Gardens [6] in Trenton. The maximum capacity at the arena is 1,100 and McDonald says he hopes they can get as close as possible to that limit.

“I hope we do, but if we get the same attendance as last year we’ll be happy.”

Tickets for the game are available at the Hastings-Prince Edward County Canadian Cancer Society’s office [7], Scotiabank locations [8] in Trenton and Rustic Routes [9] in Stirling. Tickets will also be sold at the door.

“Get out here, wear pink and cheer for the Golden Hawks,” said McDonald.
