Susan G. Komen Hockey Night for the Cure.

Last week while I was in Florida I got an awesome email from Carrie about a cause that is close to both of our hearts, breast cancer. Here in San Antonio they are already getting ready for the 5 k which is happening in April. All I have to say is that the tickets are already bought and will be in hand this weekend. It's a little bit earlier than last year, but I am hoping you can sign up at the game. I will 100% be getting the packet mailed to me this time. I love the amazing turn out of the 5K and all the money it raises! The only down side to last year's race was this woman in front of us on her cell phone while the NATIONAL ANTHEM was playing and her quote was: "Sorry I can't hear you over this loud music!!!" No lie I don't think she was American, and you should have seen all the people around us that turned and gave her the dirtiest looks EVER! It's an amazing cause and you don't have to be all about you during this hour of your life people. Grrr.. okay crazy vent over, here is the information. I would LOVE to meet up and see a bunch of you there!

This is the email she got and forwarded to me:

Dear Komen Friends,

With your help, in 2010 the San Antonio Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure invested more than $1.25 million in breast cancer screening, treatment, education and research.  Revenues generated by Race and other special events support local nonprofits providing life-saving services for the medically underserved of our community.  This would not have been possible without the incredible support of our Race participants!

The San Antonio Rampage have partnered with
Komen to host Pink in the Rink Night on Friday,
January 28, 2011, at 7 p.m. To get motivated for the 2011 Race (April 30th), let’s “Pink Out the Rink” and bring everyone together for some camaraderie and raise additional dollars for Komen.

For the first time in Rampage history, the entire ice surface will be dyed pink to signify breast health awareness. $5 from each Charter seat, $3 from each Plaza seat and $1 from each Fan Zone seat sold will be donated to the Komen San Antonio Affiliate.

Rampage players will wear one-of-a kind pink themed jerseys to be auctioned to the public immediately following the game.  Fifty percent of proceeds from the auction will benefit the San Antonio Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  For more information or to download a printable flyer, click here.

Be the first to purchase your tickets or get more information by calling a Rampage representative at 210-444-5959. To order online, select Find Tickets then enter Special Offer Code {KOMEN} after you click here to register and follow a few easy steps:

Look forward to seeing you there!
