This year Pittsford Hockey will continue the tradition of Pink the Rink. Our 14th annual Pittsford Panthers Pink the Rink games will be held on January 20, 2024, at Tim Hortons Iceplex. Pittsford will host back-to-back JV and Varsity games against Victor. Both Pittsford and Victor teams will incorporate pink into their game day attire as a show of support in the fight against breast cancer. Net proceeds from our Pink the Rink night will be donated to the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester.
Last year, Pink the Rink raised $13,540 to donate to the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester, from corporate T shirt sponsorships, admission proceeds, T-shirt sales, chuck-a-puck sales, honor sign sponsorships, and game day donations.
Pink the Rink has been a Pittsford School District tradition since 2010 and has raised over $91,000 for The Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester. We have been breaking fundraising and attendance records the last few years and are hoping to continue that trend! This annual event began when Friends of Pittsford Hockey Board Member, Celeste Frohm, proposed the idea for Pink the Rink after watching her son play in a similar event at the State University of New York at Fredonia. Frohm believed it would be an effective way to bring the community together for a worthy cause. This Pittsford Hockey tradition has created life-long memories for our hockey players.
Pittsford Hockey continues to raise awareness and funds for the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester through corporate sponsors, family sponsorships, ticket & t-shirt sales. All donations go directly to the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester in their support of those touched by breast or gynecologic cancer.

It was a win for Pittsford Hockey and a win for breast cancer awareness at the 14th annual Pink the Rink hockey games on January 20, which raised $9,000 to support the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester.
Donning their iconic pink jerseys, the Panthers defeated Victor Blue Devils in an exciting and fast paced game that ended with a score of 7-5 and marked the 250th win for Coach Steve Thering.
The event has raised a total of $100,000 towards education, support, and advocacy of breast cancer research since the start of the tradition in 2010.
