Team Up Foundation Partners with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation for Pink Ribbon Weekend
The MLSE Team Up Foundation is partnering with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation to present Pink Ribbon Weekend – October 10th-11th, 2009.
The goal of Pink Ribbon Weekend is to raise awareness and funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. This year, by combining the efforts of all four MLSE teams - Maple Leafs, Raptors, Toronto FC and Marlies - we expect to reach a much larger audience, boost fundraising potential and increase awareness of the partnership of CBCF and MLSE in the community. Wear pink to the game or watch at home. Help us create a future without breast cancer by bidding on exciting auction items.
Toronto FC vs San Jose Earthquakes Saturday, October 10th 4:00pm
Maple Leafs vs Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday, October 10th 7:00pm
Raptors vs Washington Wizards Sunday, October 11th 3:00pm
Marlies vs Rockford Ice Hogs Sunday, October 11th 4:00pm
Toronto Raptors players will be sporting white and pink shooting shirts during warm up of the October 11th game vs. Washington Wizards to show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During the game Breast Cancer Foundation volunteers will offer ribbons to the fans, collect donations and providing information about the Foundation and the fight against breast cancer.
