Jamestown, New York (Friday, January 27, 2012)—On Friday, February 3rd (7:05 p.m. face-off), in conjunction with LINKS Charity and WCA Hospital, the Jamestown Ironmen will host their second “Pink the Rink” of the season at the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena. To honor the courage of breast cancer patients, the Ironmen will once again wear custom-made hockey jerseys and encourage everyone in attendance to join them by also wearing pink.

The Jamestown Ironmen are conducting a Charity Auction featuring these game-worn jerseys, pink hockey sticks, and other pink items autographed by Ironmen players and coaches, as well as NAHL alumni and current Buffalo Sabres Ryan Miller, Nathan Gerbe, and Thomas Vanek. A silent auction featuring these one-of-a-kind items will take place before and during the game, and a live auction will follow the game.

All of the auction proceeds, as well as $2 from the purchase of every “Pink the Rink” ticket, will benefit LINKS Charity and local breast cancer care at WCA Hospital. For pre-sale tickets, please call the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena at 716-484-2624 or visit
