Storm Fans Go Pink For The Cause

The Grande Prairie Storm held their annual Pink In The Rink game on October 21.

Over 1,400 fans piled into Revolution Place Arena wearing some form of pink to take in the game that helped raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society.

The Storm contributions to the cause featured a pink Frisbee toss at the intermission and selling pink awareness ribbons. These efforts brought in $1,700. 

Putting the fundraising total over $2,000 was the help of a Grande Prairie fifth-grader Bryson Howe who sews and sells Teddy Bears across Canada with his grandmother to donate to the cause.

The Storm players taped up in pink and defeated the Drumheller Dragons 3-1 in a penalty-filled matchup, bringing their record to 8-5-3, with a solid hold on fourth in the North Division of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.

The Storm are in action again this weekend when they host the Bonnyville Pontiacs Friday and Saturday starting at 7:30 p.m.
