Melville Prairie Fire get set for their "Face-Off against Breast Cancer" Event this Saturday
The Melville Prairie Fire are inviting you to join the “Face Off against Breast Cancer" Battle.
The girls are known for being a hard working team on and off the ice as well with helping out in the community, but this year they chose to start a new war. A common killer to women, the girls have decided to give their support towards the fight against Breast Cancer. They take pride in being female AAA hockey players, they take pride in their community and they take pride in knowing they can make a difference against one of the most common cancers against women.
This Saturday (Jan. 23rd) at 7:30 the Prairie Fire will take on the Weyburn Goldwings at the Horizon Credit Union Arena, this game will be their “Face Off against Breast Cancer” game, all proceeds will go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
There will be door donations, a penny parade, a silent auction, and puck tosses amongst many other planned events. At the end of the game, a cheque will be handed to Mellissa Mish, a well-known individual within their community whom at one time she had to fight cancer herself. She is also known for playing four years with the Prairie Fire as well.
She is accepting it on behalf of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
