The Edmonton Oilers Ladies are inviting fans of the hockey club to support their first annual 'Power Of Pink' campaign benefiting the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Fans attending Friday night's Oilers game against the Colorado Avalanche will have the opportunity to purchase an Oilers ballcap for only $20. Each of the ballcaps are autographed by an Oilers player in silver or gold ink. If the ballcap is signed in gold, the fan will instantly receive one of 23 autographed sticks, signed by the entire Oilers team.
"Breast cancer affects one out of every nine women in Canada, and over 21,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year," said Wendy Smith, wife of Oilers Captain Jason Smith. "We wanted to do our part to help find a cure. So remember to 'think pink' when you're at the game on Friday night."
The Edmonton Oilers Ladies will be selling the ballcaps at three locations on the main concourse of Rexall Place. Fans who purchase a ballcap will also receive a pink bracelet compliments of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. The fundraiser is in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
