The Ontario Reign will join the fight against breast cancer with the biggest Pink in the Rink event in team history against the San Jose Barracuda at Citizens Business Bank Arena on February 5.
"We are looking forward to partnering with Susan G. Komen Inland Empire to help in the fight against breast cancer,” said President of LA Kings Minor League Affiliates Darren Abbott. “Our fans have shown again and again that they will support our efforts in the community, and hopefully by painting the rink pink for a night, we can raise awareness and funds for this great cause.”
Reign Pink Packs feature a ticket to the game with best available seating, exclusive 2016 Pink in the Rink t-shirt and donation to Susan G. Komen Inland Empire for as low as $30.
For the first time in Inland Empire history, the Citizens Business Bank Arena ice will be transformed into a frozen pond of pink and the Reign will wear pink jerseys and host a jersey auction. Fans can join the fight with an exclusive Reign Pink Pack with a portion of all the night’s proceeds benefiting Susan G. Komen Inland Empire.
“We are so pleased to be partnering with the Ontario Reign, one of Inland Empire’s beloved sports teams in our community,” Executive Director of Susan G. Komen, Inland Empire, Jill Eaton said. “We’re sure the team’s support of our organization’s efforts will resonate with all of our supporters of this crucially important cause.”
