*The game on Saturday night will be played on PINK ICE, for the first time ever! You've probably heard the term "Pink the Rink" before, but never like this. Even if you're not a fan of hockey, it'd be worth the price of admission just to see the pink ice.

Speaking of admission, all of the proceeds from this Breast Cancer Awareness Game will go to Cancer Pathways Midwest. In addition to the pink ice, the Evansville Hoses players will sport pink jerseys, and fans are asked to do the same. Limited edition pink Evansville Hoses Hockey team shirts and admission bracelets are currently on sale. Doors open at 6pm, and the puck drops at 7pm.

For more information, please contact Swonder Ice Arena at (812) 479-0989.
