PINK THE RINK a resounding success!
NEWS COVERAGE OF THE EVENT
Thank you to everyone in the Prep hockey community for your support of Pink the Rink! It was a huge success!
The event and
game were featured on the NBC-10 11:00 p.m. news last
night and The Delco Times covered the game after
promoting it on their Twitter feed during the
day. Check out the link for the article in
today’s Delco Times: http://www.gametimepa.com/
A special thank you to the players, who were challenged to "fill the room." You delivered! 406 people paid to attend the varsity game, which shattered the record for paid attendance at the Skatium for an ICSHL varsity game. This is in addition to those who had passes for the game and those who attended the Pink the Rink Open Skate. WOW!
Pink the Rink is a herculean effort that can't occur without the generous help of many, many people. We were lucky to partner with the Skatium staff and O’Hara Ice Hockey Program who really supported the event. Thank you so much to those in the Prep hockey family who donated baked goods and pretzels, to the JV-AAA players who volunteered, to the moms "at the tables", to the dads who helped with set up and clean up, to the photographers and announcer, to the managers who kept things running smoothly and to those who made donations and/or purchased t-shirts, pucks and 50/50 raffle tickets to benefit the Kelly Rooney Foundation. All donations of time, talent and treasure were really appreciated. You made my job easy!
A final thank you to the coaches who were so accommodating to the chaos and disruption of the “Puck Chuck” and all the pre-game and between-game activities. We appreciate your understanding when the focus of the evening drifted away from the game.
See you at the rink,
the Curse Ended Earlier...
