ARMONK, New York — Decked out in pink, the Byram Hills Varsity Hockey Team raised more than $7,500 for breast cancer research at its 11th annual Pink the Rink event.
The team raised $7,653 through efforts including the sale of baked goods and Pink the Rink merchandise and a chuck-a-puck contest at their game against Mahopac at the Brewster Ice Arena on Jan. 20. All proceeds were donated to the American Cancer Society.
“Byram Hills is proud of the Varsity Hockey Team members for their commitment to raising money for cancer research,” said Rob Castagna, the Byram Hills director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics. “We are grateful to both school communities for supporting this important cause.”
Many players and fans dedicated the game to someone affected by breast cancer. With a large crowd and a fun and festive atmosphere, the Bobcats defeated Mahopac 13-6.
