Over $80,000 Raised In 10th Annual Petes Pink in the Rink Game

The 10th Annual Pink in the Rink game took place at the Peterborough Memorial Centre on Saturday night (February 2nd).

The Petes may have lost on the ice—6-3 to the Oshawa Generals—but the entire night was a huge win for the organization and community as over $80,000 was raised to fight cancer.

The Petes, in association with the Canadian Cancer Society, announced that the campaign raised $80,811.11, bringing the 10 year total to over $697,000.

A season-high 3,852 fans attended the game—the team’s highest attended game since Pink in the Rink on February 9th, 2013.

The Petes players wore special Pink in the Rink fundraising sweaters, which were sold in a post-game live jersey auction.

Petes alumni Steve Larmer (1977-78) and Cameron Mann (1993-97) were the honourary co-chairs of this year’s Pink in the Rink campaign.
