BBA to Pink the Rink
MANCHESTER >> This Saturday, the Burr and Burton Academy hockey team will be hosting its second annual Pink the Rink. Last year, the team raised more than $300, which was donated to Team Severance for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
This year, we are going to continue our efforts and build off of our success. Our ultimate goal is still the same. We want to give back to our community and be able to teach our players how to be good community members. Unlike last year, we are going to send a local family, who has been battling breast cancer, away for a weekend. We want this family to able to get away, relax, not think about cancer, and not worry about the finances. We want them to have time away from their everyday lives and time to spend as a family.
At a few locations around Manchester, pink ribbons are available for $5 each. On the ribbon is a white tag with the name of the person who purchased the ribbon, and a small message and these ribbons will be displayed at the rink on Saturday and there will also be a few raffles where you can purchase tickets before and during the game.
