SWEET SWEATERS!

Pink at the Rink Set for Men's Hockey Game on Friday (Dartmouth Sports, 02/25/2009)

HANOVER, N.H. - This Friday the Dartmouth men's hockey team takes on Princeton at 7:30 and will be participating in the second annual Pink at the Rink to benefit the American Cancer Society and promote cancer awareness. The first 250 fans in the door will receive a pink "Real Men Wear Pink" t-shirt, courtesy of Northeast Waste Services. This is the first time the men's team will be wearing special jersey's to promote the event. The jersey's will be autographed and auctioned off after the game. [...]

Dartmouth is teaming up with its community and particularly the Norris Cotton Cancer Center at its own Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. The Big Green is doing its part to raise awareness and lend support to those fighting all cancers and recognize the work of those who care for them. If anyone would like to bid on either the game-worn jerseys or the special neck-tie worn by Coach Gaudet you can go to ecachockeycoachesvscancer.com from Feb. 27 to March 8 to place your bid. A minimum bid of $150 is sought for each player’s jersey.

"Our team is excited that we're able to be a bigger part of the activities," said senior captain Rob Pritchard. "Last season the women got to wear the pink jerseys and participate in the acution and I didn't feel like our team was able to contribute as much. So this year we're excited to be a big part of it and proud to bring some awareness and money to the cause."
