Fourth annual Pink the Rink Nights Jan. 30 and 31

Fort Wayne, IN ---The Komets and the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer will again partner this year for the fourth annual "Pink The Rink" Nights to fight breast cancer and promote awareness for early detection and treatment. "Pink The Rink" Nights are scheduled for Friday, Jan. 30 when the Komets host the Elmira Jackals at 8pm and Saturday, Jan. 31 when division rival Toledo Walleye visit for a 7:30pm faceoff at the War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne. "We’re delighted to partner with the Fort Wayne Komets once again to raise funds for breast cancer research,” shares Lynda Houk, events coordinator of the Vera Bradley Foundation.The Komets-Vera Bradley Foundation "Pink The Rink" cooperative has successfully raised more than $40,000 for research the past three years it has been held. The funds raised have a direct impact on hastening discoveries into the causes and cures for breast cancer.

As part of the “Pink The Rink" Nights, the Komets will wear a one-of-a-kind jersey in support of breast cancer awareness. The jerseys will be sold during a silent auction starting with the game on Friday, Jan. 30. The auction will end after the second intermission of the game Saturday, Jan. 31. Net proceeds will be donated to the Vera Bradley Foundation. “Pink The Rink” autographed player pucks will be specially wrapped by the Vera Bradley Foundation and sell for $10.00 each with proceeds going to the Vera Bradley Foundation.

The Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer completed its 2014 fiscal year with a net raised of $3.2 million. The Foundation’s main benefactor is Vera Bradley, Inc., which contributes approximately $1 million each year to the cause. Additional support comes from several sources including events and individual donations. Vera Bradley’s co-founders began raising funds for a cure after the loss of a dear friend to the disease in 1993.
