NORTH CHARLESTON, SC - The South Carolina Stingrays, celebrating 21 seasons of hockey in the Lowcountry and proud ECHL affiliate of the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League (NHL), unveiled the 2014 Pink in the Rink jerseys today at a press conference at East Cooper Medical Center in Mt. Pleasant.
The jerseys will be worn by the players during the Stingrays' Eighth Annual Pink in the Rink presented by East Cooper Medical Center benefiting Susan G. Komen Lowcountry on Saturday, February 22 as the Stingrays battle the Evansville IceMen at 7:05 p.m. at North Charleston Coliseum.
"We are extremely excited for this season's event," said Stingrays President Rob Concannon. "It is a special game on our schedule that continues to grow every season with the goal of raising awareness and funds to fight breast cancer in the Charleston area. We are once again happy to partner with East Cooper Medical Center for this game."
The jerseys will be auctioned live at the end of the game with proceeds going towards Susan G. Komen Lowcountry to help fight breast cancer. The Stingrays will also host a silent auction on the main concourse featuring items from local business, professional sports teams and more. In the seven-year history of the event, the Stingrays donated over $162,000 to fight breast cancer in the Lowcountry.
