Stockton Heat to turn pink for breast cancer


stockton heatSTOCKTON — The Stockton Heat will continue an annual hockey tradition this weekend when they paint the ice pink for breast cancer awareness.

The Heat will raise money for St. Joseph’s Foundation – Breast Health Services during its home games Friday and Saturday as part of Hot Pink 1 presented by Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Medical Center.

In addition to playing on pink ice, Heat players will wear pink jerseys during their Friday and Saturday games. Fans can bid for pink jerseys during silent and live auctions. The live auction will take place on Saturday night after the game against Ontario. There will also be raffles on the Heat’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.  

The team will also make a number of special items available in the silent auction. Proceeds from that auction and other event proceeds will be donated to St. Joseph’s Foundation – Breast Health Services.

Hot Pink 1 continues the tradition that began 10 years ago when the Stockton Thunder played at the arena. The event brought in a  total of $247,085 donated in the previous nine hockey seasons with an average of nearly $27,454 donated each year.
