Oct 4, 2011
Milwaukee, WI– Milwaukee Admirals President Jon Greenberg announced today that for the fifth consecutive season the team will present the “Hunt for Pink October,” where they will help promote cancer awareness at all of the team’s games during October.
The Admirals will wear special pink jerseys on October 29th and 30th and those jerseys will be auctioned off via an online and silent auction with the proceeds going to Lee National Denim Day. Since 1996, Lee National Denim Day® has raised nearly $80 million for the fight against breast cancer, $5 at a time. Money raised supports the Woman’s Cancer Programs of Entertainment Industry Foundation and Cancer Support Communities. Click here to donate to the Admirals team or start your own!
The online auction at milwaukeeadmirals.com will begin at 10:00 am on Monday, October 24th and will run through 4:00 pm on Friday, October 28th.
