Pats ‘Funding the Fight’ on Friday

Regina, Saskatchewan – The Regina Pats are ready to host their annual ‘Paint the Rink Pink’ night this Friday.  The Pats play host to the Moose Jaw Warriors at 7 p.m. in the first game of a home and home.  
This is the team’s eleventh year ‘Funding the Fight’ against breast cancer.  Tomorrow night’s fundraising efforts go to breast cancer research through the Canadian Cancer Society.  Fans attending the game will notice all the rink board advertisements and glass stanchions have gone pink.  Thanks to game sponsor Imagination Ink and all of our rink board sponsors for making this possible.  Regina Pats players will wear pink tape and laces.   
Fans can help in the Pats efforts to ‘Paint the Rink Pink’ by filling out an ‘I Fight For’ poster.  With a $2 donation to the Canadian Cancer Society, fans can show their support for someone currently fighting cancer, in recovery or remember someone who passed away.  The posters will hang on the facing of the upper deck with the goal of creating a pink ribbon around the arena.
In addition to the ‘I Fight For’ posters, the Pats will raffle off a game worn red Daniel Wapple jersey with all the proceeds donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.  A $10 donation gets fans ten tickets for the draw.  The Canadian Cancer Society will also be set up on the concourse fundraising with a merchandise table.  Fans are also able to simply make a donation to the cancer society which will go directly to breast cancer research.
As in past seasons, the Blue and White will honour a group of breast cancer survivors at centre ice prior to puck drop.  Friday’s rendition of the national anthem will have the Brandt Centre rocking as Gordie Johnson from Canadian rock group ‘Big Sugar’ will perform O Canada to kick the night off.
Tickets for Friday’s game are available at Ticketmaster.ca, the Brandt Centre Box Office and Safeway locations throughout Regina.
Named for the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, the Western Hockey League’s Regina Pats are the oldest major junior hockey franchise in the world.  Since their founding in 1917, the Pats have won three Memorial Cup championships and compete in the WHL’s Eastern Division.  To learn more about the Pats, call 306-337-1535 or visit www.reginapats.com.
