Sep. 15, 2009

The Rochester Raging Rhinos will don pink jerseys to raise awareness of breast cancer during the season-ending game against the Charleston Battery Friday, Sept. 18. The game begins at 8 p.m. at Marina Auto Stadium.

The team and fans will raise funds for the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center at the University of Rochester Medical Center. The pink jerseys will be auctioned off following the game and a portion of ticket sales will be donated to support breast cancer care.  In addition, the first 5,000 fans will receive a breast cancer awareness bracelet.

Tickets are available at the Rhinos box office or through Ticketmaster.

The Wilmot Cancer Center is the region’s leader in cancer care and research. Its Comprehensive Breast Care Center is dedicated to diagnosing and treating breast problems in a multidisciplinary model. This approach brings all breast specialists – imaging experts, pathologists, surgeons, geneticists, oncologists, and radiation oncologists – together to offer each patient the best treatment and opportunity for survival.
