Tri-City Americans host ‘Pink Ice’ night for breast cancer
The Tri-City Americans hockey team hosts its 15th annual Pink Ice Night to draw attention to breast cancer and raise money for the Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation.
The program begins at 7:05 p.m. Feb. 28 at Toyota Center in Kennewick. Discounted tickets are available for $12 through the foundation, 509-737-3413.
The rink will be painted pink. Pink game jerseys worn by the players will be auctioned at the game. Commemorative T-shirts will be available with a donation and there will be a silent auction on the concourse.
Warrior Sisterhood, a support group to empower local women with cancer or cancer-related diagnoses, will display decorated luminary bags honoring and remembering those who faced cancer on the mezzanine during the program.
Those wishing to include their loved ones’ names can buy a bag for $5 through the cancer center foundation office or through the Warrior Sisterhood Facebook page. They’ll also be sold during the Feb. 14-15 Ams games.
Purchase luminary bags before Feb. 24.
