Pink the Rink

Pink the Rink! The idea for the fundraiser started two summers ago when the captains and the officers of the Oswego State Men's ACHA hockey team wanted to do something to give back to the community. A suggestion was made the have the players wear pink jerseys to be raffled off after the game. And from that suggestion Pink the Rink was born!

My daughter Sophia said it was a "good drop" No bounce!
These boys are raising spirits and money too! Last year the team donated $1200 to the Upstate Cancer Center after their first Pink the Rink weekend and this year drummed up another $1100!  This is a great example of a true team effort from the planning to the designing stages. The jersey logo was the creation of former Assistant Captain Chris Cavanaugh ('12) and parents helped secure donations for raffle prizes.
  " As hockey players, coaches and support personnel involved with the team, we realize how fortunate we are and we are hoping that with the money raised, that we will be able to help in a small way, assist in curing this disease that has touched so many of us."

     Now that's a team. Stick taps for the Oswego State Men's ACHA D1 hockey team!
