WINDSOR, Colo. – Over the past several seasons, the Colorado Eagles have been involved in raising an incredible amount of awareness, support and funds for cancer patients and survivors in Northern Colorado, and this season will be no different. The team announced just some of its planned involvement in the "Hockey Fights Cancer" initiative, starting with events during the season’s first month of October (Breast Cancer Awareness month).
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the team will once again be sporting special edition pink jerseys in October. The jerseys will be worn during the team’s preseason game at the Budweiser Events Center on Friday, Oct. 7 when the Las Vegas Wranglers visit in the Eagles’ first ever ECHL home game. The same pink jerseys will be worn by the players in pre-game warm-ups during the regular season home opener on Oct. 21 prior to being auctioned off on the concourse that night.
Replicas of those special edition pink jerseys will be on sale (while supplies last) at the team’s merchandise locations, headlining several pink-themed items: pucks, t-shirts, hoodies and more! A portion of the proceeds from replica jersey sales will be added to the funds raised through the jersey auction.
For the second consecutive year, the Eagles will be teaming up with Pedersen Toyota as the two companies will combine their fundraising efforts to benefit the PVHS Cancer Center currently under construction at the Harmony campus (located at the intersection of Timberline & Harmony in Fort Collins). For every new car sold at Pedersen Toyota in the month of October, the company will take a portion of the sale and combine it with the proceeds raised by the Eagles. To help create awareness for their efforts, a pair of Eagles players will be signing autographs at Pedersen Toyota on Saturday, Oct. 8 from 1-2:15.
