MEDICINE HAT TIGERS: Stick It To Breast Cancer
 

MEDICINE HAT, AB - The Canadian Cancer Society was the winner last night when the Medicine Hat Tigers downed the visiting Regina Pats 5-4.

Tigers fans gave generously to the Canadian Cancer Society through the team's annual 'Stick It To Breast Cancer' campaign. A total of $6,500.42 was raised in the silent auction for specially wrapped pink sticks which the players used last night in warm up and the first period of last night's game. A raffle draw was also conducted for five team autographed pink sticks, a signed team jersey and a special team autographed pink Tigers jersey.

Hunter Shinkaruk's stick brought the highest total of the evening at $525.00 followed by Tigers' rookie forward Chad Labelle at $400.00 and local Medicine Hat product Curtis Valk at $350.00.

A total of 30 Easton sticks were donated by the Medicine Hat Tigers to the Canadian Cancer Society to conduct the silent auction.

"Everyone knows someone in their family or close friends that have been affected by cancer," said Tigers' senior director, marketing and public relations Dave Andjelic. "It is a terrible disease and we are very fortunate to be able to help the Canadian Cancer Society in their quest to raise funds to help find a cure."

"We would like to thank our fans for once again showing the tremendous generosity Medicine Hat is know for in supporting the many charities our team tries to help each year," said Andjelic.

The Tigers would like to thank Meyers, Norris, Penny LLP for their sponsorship of 'Stick It To Breast Cancer' and their many volunteers that attending the game to help raise money for this very worthy cause.
