The Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre will be getting a pink overhaul this week with the Victoria Royals’ Pink in the Rink Night.

The annual fundraising game takes place Saturday, Feb. 20 and will have Royals’ players donning special edition pink jerseys as they take on the Kamloops Blazers.

Players are helping raise awareness in support of the B.C. Cancer Foundation by fundraising through their personal online donation pages.

All proceeds from the event support life-saving cancer research taking place at the B.C. Cancer Agency.

Raffle prizes, a 50/50 draw and jersey auctions are some of the activities planned at the event that’s been a Victoria staple since 2008.

Last year’s Pink in the Rink raised over $35,000 to help advance cancer care on Vancouver Island.
