'Jacks raise $3000 for cancer charities

The Muskegon Lumberjacks have announced that Saturday night’s Pink the Rink Night resulted in more than $3,000 being raised for the Johnson Family Center for Cancer Care and the Feed America Local Food Truck.

The Jacks’ players wore pink jerseys during Saturday’s game against the Waterloo Black Hawks and the team held a jersey auction afterward. All of the money raised during the auction, as well as a portion of the profit from every commemorative pink T-Shirt sold, totaled $2,563.80, and will be donated to the Johnson Family Center for Cancer Care. Also, a portion of the T-Shirt profits is being donated to the Feed American Local Food Truck, which will receive $248.80 from the Lumberjacks.

The Shoreline Inn’s restaurant, The Lake House, teamed up with the Jacks for the promotion, donating $2 for every meal purchased on Friday and Saturday, and raised $380. A grand total of $3,192.60 was raised as a result of Pink the Rink Night.
