Dynamiters boost Starlite from Pink Jerseys initiative
The old saying ‘Pretty in Pink’ took on a new meaning when players of the Kimberley Dynamiters donned pink jerseys for the month of October.
The player’s jerseys were then auctioned off with proceeds being donated to East Kootenay Foundation for Health for its annual Starlite Campaign.
Not only did the players look pretty in pink, they played well in pink and they encouraged their fans to bid on the pink. The fans did not disappoint and showed the Dynamiters organization their appreciation with an amazing $3,000 secured through the jersey auction.
However, the Dynamiters’ story doesn’t end there. For a second time the hockey club is partnering with paddlers from the Abreast in the Rockies Dragonboat Association to purchase a $13,500 sentinel biopsy probe for the regional hospital. The probe benefits surgical procedures for breast cancer patients.
“We are extremely grateful to the Kimberley Dynamiters for their continued support. Their gift combined with that of the Abreast in the Rockies Dragonboat Association to purchase this probe is truly a win win situation for those receiving a breast cancer diagnosis,” shared Donna Grainger, EKFH Executive Director.
Help light a path for others this holiday season by making a gift to EKFH’s annual Starlite Campaign in support of community health programs in your area.
