Titan and Roses Radiothon fight cancer with Pink in the Rink
The Acadie-Bathurst Titan announces Pink in the Rink is returning to the community, where the team will raise both money and awareness for Roses Radiothon and the Chaleur Regional Hospital’s cancer initiatives.
The Titan have partnered with the Chaleur region’s Roses Radiothon for the 2023 Pink in the Rink event, which will see Titan players wearing specially designed jerseys in honour of the event, when they hit the ice against the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies.
“We are thrilled to bring Pink in the Rink back this season and help raise money and awareness for the local radiothon and hospital. Roses Radiothon is an important initiative, and we are proud to be able to partner with them to help in the fight against cancer,” said Gilles Cormier, executive director of the Acadie-Bathurst Titan.
“We are very proud of our partnership with the Titan, which allows us to raise awareness of our regional hospital’s cancer initiatives and raise funds for the Rose Radiothon. We would like to thank the Titan for this opportunity, and we hope that people will stand together on November 26th to support health care at home first!,” said Alice Hébert, president of the Chaleur region’s Roses Radiothon.
This is the first time since the 2019-20 season the Titan have hosted a Pink in the Rink night at the K.C. Irving Regional Centre. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the local Roses Radiothon. There will be fundraising events for the radiothon at the rink throughout the game as well.
The Chaleur region’s Roses Radiothon will also hold a silent auction for the Acadie-Bathurst Titan Pink in the Rink game-worn jerseys. The auction will begin at the K.C. Irving Regional Centre November 18, and run until November 26. All proceeds from the auction will go to the radiothon.
The 2023 Pink in the Rink jerseys were designed by Acadie-Bathurst Titan Marketing & Game Day Coordinator, Erin White. Not only are the jerseys a nice soft pink, but she had incorporated a special design into the jerseys in honour of the partnership with the radiothon.
“The local Roses Radiothon and the Chaleur Hospital Foundation have always put our community first, and I couldn’t think of a better way to showcase the heart and dedication of its mission, then by honouring them on our Titan jerseys. I can’t wait for the Chaleur region to see our pink jerseys and the homage they pay to such an important cause in the fight against cancer,” said White.
We hope to see everyone at the K.C. Irving Regional Centre on November 26 for Pink in the Rink and support this important cause. Any questions regarding the initiative or media requests can be directed to Titan Communications Coordinator, Bryannah James, at [email protected].
