The Lincoln Stars Hockey Team and the American Cancer Society will be teaming up in the fight against breast cancer with "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Night" at the Ice Box this Friday. The Stars, who face the Waterloo Black Hawks, will be wearing specially-designed jerseys which will be sold in a live auction following the game with proceeds going to the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.
In addition to the jersey auction, commemorative breast cancer awareness t-shirts will be sold for $10 each at the game. With each t-shirt purchase, fans will be entered into a drawing for great prizes from the American Cancer Society, Texas Roadhouse and The Lincoln Stars. Breast cancer survivors in attendance will receive special recognition that night as well.
"We are very excited to be partnering with the Lincoln Stars through various promotions during this hockey season," commented Joy King, Regional Vice President for the American Cancer Society. "Their organization has shown a commitment to our mission that demonstrates how they are invested in the fight against cancer. We hope that the community will show their support of this partnership in order help people to get well, stay well, find cures and fight back against a disease that takes too much."
In addition to Friday night, for the third year in a row the Lincoln Stars will also be participating in Lincoln's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on Sunday, Oct. 17 at Holmes Park in Lincoln. The walk features more than 5,000 Lincoln residents walking and raising funds to fight breast cancer. The Stars will also feature another partnership night with the American Cancer Society on March 19th. There will be a jersey auction following that game as well with proceeds going to the Lincoln Relay For Life.
