Rink will be pink in Muskegon on Oct. 30

On Saturday, Oct. 30, the Muskegon Lumberjacks won’t just go to battle with the Waterloo Black Hawks at the L.C. Walker Arena, they’ll also be facing off against breast cancer.

In an effort to raise breast cancer awareness, the Lumberjacks will hold their Pink the Rink Night. The doors open at 6:15 p.m. and the puck drops at 7:15 p.m. The Jacks will be dressed in pink jerseys and socks and a pink ribbon will be painted on the ice surface

Shawn Stephenson, a cancer survivor and daughter of Muskegon hockey icon Ron Stephenson, will drop the ceremonial first puck. After the game, the team will hold a live auction for the pink jerseys.

Groups of 10 or more can purchase loaded tickets for $15 per member of the group, which will get them an adult ticket to the game and a commemorative pink T-shirt. The deadline for groups to get loaded tickets is Thursday, Oct. 28. Shirts can be purchased individually for $5. All proceeds from the auction, loaded tickets and shirt sales will benefit the Johnson Family Center for Cancer Care.
