Pistons getting pink for cancer

The colour pink will be taking over the T.G. Smith Centre this Saturday.

The Pistons are encouraging fans to suit up in pink and then get ready to cheer as Steinbach hosts the Dauphin Kings for the 2nd of back-to-back series.

The Pistons will once again wear pink jerseys, which will then be auctioned off during the game. Once the buzzer sounds to end the game, the jerseys will be awarded to the highest bidder.

Fans who may not be able to outbid the competition for a jersey can still get involved by giving a donation for a limited edition pink Pistons Pink in the Rink paper flag which will be handed out at the ticket gate during the game.

The Pistons will be giving 4 year-old Izaiah Peters the opportunity to drop the puck. Izaiah recently finished 3 years of cancer treatments. The organization will also celebrate the cancer survivors in attendance recognizing them on the ice during the 1st intermission.

The bidding process on the jerseys has begun at steinbachpistons.ca – place your bid by emailing info@steinbachpistons.ca.

The proceeds from the event will be given to the Canadian Cancer Society Manitoba Division.
