The Fernie Ghostriders hit the rink this weekend sporting bright pink jerseys. The team will be wearing the special edition jerseys all October long in an effort to raise money for Elk Valley cancer patients.
“It’s our way of doing something special for cancer patients and giving back to the community,” commented Head Coach, Barry Wolff.
The Ghostriders unveiled the jerseys at their Saturday night home game against the Creston Valley Thunder Cats for the kick off of a month long silent auction.
Anyone can put in a bid on one of the special edition jerseys, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the jersey number and bid price. The opening bid will start at $100 and anyone who has made an offer on a jersey will receive an email every time it gets a new bid.
The bidding will close on November 18 at midnight, and all the proceeds will go to local cancer patients.
