2018 Pink in the Rink Celebrity Server and Game Details Announced

January 10, 2018 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) - Peterborough Petes News Release

Campaign to conclude with 9th annual Pink in the Rink game on Feb. 3 vs Oshawa

(Peterborough, ON) - The Peterborough Petes, in association with the Canadian Cancer Society Peterborough & District Community Office, announced today additional details surrounding the ninth annual Petes Pink in the Rink fundraising campaign. The campaign concludes with the Pink in the Rink game on Saturday, February 3 at 7:05pm against the Oshawa Generals.

Gary and Pete Dalliday, and Tori Sotiriadis, were named this year's campaign chairpeople at a press conference in October. A fundraising goal of $60,000 has been set by the Canadian Cancer Society and the 2018 Pink in the Rink Committee.

Once again this year, a special jersey design has been created to honour those affected by cancer (image attached). For a donation of $20 to the Canadian Cancer Society, fans were able to add the name of someone who has or continues to battle cancer, or who lost a fight to cancer, to be printed on the specialty jerseys. In addition, fans will have the opportunity to bid on and purchase commemorative game-worn jerseys during a live post-game auction.

Other game night fundraising initiatives will include a silent auction, chuck-a-ball contest, t-shirt sales, and scarf sales.

The campaign continues with a Petes Celebrity Servers event on Wednesday, January 10 from 5-8pm at Kelsey's and Montana's restaurants in Peterborough. Fans are encouraged to visit either restaurant to meet Petes players who will be signing autographs, acting as celebrity servers, and selling 2018 Pink in the Rink t-shirts ($10) all in support of the Canadian Cancer Society Peterborough & District Community Office.
