You see, I am diverting the focus of this blog for one moment to something bigger, something more important than Blue Jackets hockey...and that is a cause very close to my heart - the fight against Breast Cancer.
Unfortunately, I know all too well that I don't need to tell you a bunch of stories about breast cancer because too many of us already know them. As someone who has known far too many people who have faced this disease directly, it can be frustrating when there is nothing you can do to directly fight this evil thing - so why not find a way to combine two passions - hockey, and a way to make a difference?
Consider this your formal invite to join us at "Pink at the Rink" Friday, December 2nd.
"Pink at the Rink" is an annual event that builds on tradition of the Upper Arlington High School's Breast Cancer skate. Starting at 6:30 at the Ice Haus, we have a JV match-up and Varsity game between Upper Arlington and St. Charles Prep.
Throughout the evening, we'll have raffles, a silent auction, chuck-a-puck, zamboni rides (!) and much much more.All our proceeds are going to the Young Survival Coalition and to the Stefanie Spielman Fund.
And, for all you Jackets fans, that game is a 9:30 start so you'll have perfect timing to join us for some local hockey, and then walk right around the corner to R-Bar for viewing and cheering on our boys in Union Blue! (See how thoughtfully this was all scheduled?! ;)
If you have any questions, need more information, or - have an item you'd like to donate for our auctions - please don't hesitate to contact me via comment on this blog or EMAIL.
Looking forward to seeing you all on the 2nd - and hey, when else can I guarantee that a local team will win at NWA? ;)
