Premiere #1 Limousine Service was proud to have a presence at the first ever Pink The Rink 2012 at the Hershey GIANT Center. The Hershey Bears in conjunction with Mixed-Up Productions and Leslie Gilbert Photography partnered to “Pink the Rink” in a joint effort to raise funds to support the American Cancer Society.
To kick off the evening, the Derry Township Police Department locked up team mascot Coco outside of the GIANT Center where he collected change in order to be “bailed out.” Once he was free, Leslie Gilbert Photography gave fans of all ages the opportunity to have their photo taken with Coco throughout the evening.
Mixed Up Productions had special Pink the Rink t-shirts for sale, and a few lucky fans took home a shirt autographed by a Bears player. Fans were encouraged to wear their shirts during the game to fully “pink” GIANT Center. After all the t-shirts, megaphones, hats, and pictures were sold, they were able to collect $6,625.00. All of the money raised, went straight to the American Cancer Society.
“We wanted to do something out of the ordinary to help our community and to show those diagnosed that we are here to support them,” said Mike Miller, owner of Mixed Up Productions. “Breast cancer is a serious disease for which we need to find a cure, and we hope an event like Pink the Rink will help us get a little closer to that cure.”
The evening finished with a live on-ice auction for the special Breast Cancer Awareness jerseys to be worn by the players, with a portion of the proceeds from the auction going to the American Cancer Society. “Pinky”, our pink SUV limo, had the privilege of driving Coco out on to the ice between the 1st and 2ndperiod and also at the end of the game during the live jersey auction.
