The Idaho Steelheads and St. Luke?s Mountain States Tumor Institute (MSTI) are joining forces to host a popular fundraiser, ?Pink in the Rink? this week to help women get the testing they need to prevent breast cancer. All funds raised will go to help women who can?t afford life-saving mammograms or other testing procedures. The Idaho Steelheads will wear one-of-a-kind pink jerseys for the three-game series on Wednesday, Mar. 25, Friday, Mar. 27 and Saturday, Mar. 28 against the Ontario Reign. The jerseys are pastel pink and depict breast cancer awareness ribbons swirling in various shades of pink running across the front and back mid-section of the sweater and up along one arm. One bright pink ribbon is displayed on the opposite sleeve. The Steelheads secondary logo ? the fish jumping out of the ?Idaho? word mark is highlighted on the front center in bright pink. Silent auction tables will be set up on the concourse during the three games and fans may bid on their favorite player?s jersey in increments of $100 and/or buy it outright for $2,000. The jerseys will be presented to the winning bidder by the player immediately following Saturday?s game. All of the dollars raised from the jersey auction will go to St. Luke?s. In addition, a team-autographed jersey will be auctioned off, and Pink in the Rink ball caps will be sold, with all proceeds going to MSTI.$160,650 has been raised over the past several years with similar jersey auctions, benefiting various causes at the hospital. In March of 2006, the Steelheads held the first Pink in the Rink event and raised a jersey-auction record (at that time) of $21,791 for breast cancer care and treatment through St. Luke?s (MSTI). Last year?s event raised $27,641.Tickets are still available for the games by visiting idahosteelheads.com to use the print at home feature, or by calling (208) 331-TIXS or visiting the box office at Qwest Arena.- www.idahosteelheads.com -
