Tri-City Americans give $23,000 to cancer center


The Tri-City Americans on Saturday will present a check for almost $23,000 to the Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation representing money raised at the hockey team's annual Pink Ice Night for breast cancer awareness.

Money was raised through the auction of a pink jersey during a game, sale of pink commemorative T-shirts, silent auction, "chuck a puck" event and tickets sold through the cancer center foundation.

The money stays in the community and is used to provide cancer programs and services to Tri-City patients and their families, a news release said.

The check will be presented at 7 p.m. on the ice at the Toyota Center.
