Glens Falls, NY – The Adirondack Flames announced today that $14,509.22 was raised from their post-game jersey auction on Pink in the Rink Night, presented by Glens Falls Hospital, on Saturday. All of the proceeds from the post game jersey auction will be donated to the C.R. Wood Cancer Center at Glens Falls Hospital, courtesy of the Flames and Glens Falls Hospital. Saturday evening was the second themed jersey night of the season as the Flames donned pink and white jerseys to show their appreciation and raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer. After the Flames lost a nailbiting 4-3 overtime game to the Milwaukee Admirals, the jerseys were auctioned off individually to fans with every jersey being sold. The evening’s top sellers were defenseman Corey Potter and winger Trevor Gillies, both of which sold for $850, while winger David Wolf went for $800.The Flames also ran an online ticket campaign to benefit the C.R. Wood Cancer Center, which was added into the total raised and donated. The Flames offered $15 tickets to anyone who purchased through a special online platform, with $3 from each ticket sold donated to the center. The Flames sold 176 tickets through this medium, which resulted in $528 added to the jersey raffle total.“We’d like to thank Glens Falls Hospital for their partnership, generosity and support for this cause,” Adirondack Flames President Brian Petrovek said. “Raising over $14,000 for such a great cause is no small task and we are grateful to our players and fans for the support they gave on a special night. Once again, our fans answered the bell when asked and as a result we are able to make this sizable donation to the C.R. Wood Cancer Center.”The Flames also honored 17 breast cancer survivors during the jersey auction. Partnering with Glens Falls Hospital to reach out to survivors throughout the area, the local women each walked out with a player as they auctioned off their jersey. The C.R. Wood Cancer Center offers a comprehensive program of cancer care services that are unsurpassed in the Glens Falls and Saratoga regions, from advanced treatments and innovative education and support programs to early detection and cancer prevention. Their combination of medical expertise and patient support has earned us an accreditation by the American College of Surgeons as a Community Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Program – the highest designation available outside of an academic environment.The Adirondack Flames are in action this Saturday at 7:00 p.m. as they host the Rochester Americans on Amanda’s House Night at the Civic Center. The Flames are currently running their Amanda’s House Campaign to donate to the project to refurbish the Amanda’s House of Glens Falls Hospital.
