Cyclones' Fans Come Up Big on Pink in the Rink Night
The Twin City Cyclones, in partnership with the New Balance of Winston Salem and coupled with the generosity of Twin City Hockey fans, raised $5,100 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation during "Pink in the Rink" night at their game on February 20, 2009. The Cyclones' players wore pink jerseys during the home game against the Columbus Cottonmouths. Afterwards, the team auctioned off the specialty pink jerseys with the proceeds going to the Komen Foundation.
Participation in "Pink in the Rink Night" has become a wide spread event for many professional hockey franchises. The funds raised are used to educate and heighten the public's awareness of breast cancer as well as funding research to find a cure to eliminate the impact of breast cancer on millions and their families.
The Twin City Cyclones ice hockey club is a member of the Southern Professional Hockey League, the leader in Single "A" Hockey.
