Melville Prairie Fire holding 2nd annual Face-Off against Breast Cancer Game
The Melville Prairie Fire invites you to join our 2nd annual Face Off Against Breast Cancer battle. Our girls are known for being a hard working team on and off the ice, as well as helping out in the community. The team has decided to give their support towards the war against breast cancer. We take pride in being female AAA hockey players, we take pride in our community, and we take pride in knowing we can make a difference against one of the most common cancers in women.
On January 14th at 7:30pm the Prairie Fire will take on the Prince Albert Bears at the Horizon Credit Union Arena. This game will be our Face Off Against Breast Cancer game, with all proceeds going towards the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. There will be door donations, a penny parade, a silent auction, and puck tosses among other planned activities. At the end of the game, a cheque will be presented to Tannis Artymowicz, a well-known individual within the community of Melville whom at one time had to fight breast cancer herself. She is known for her involvement in sports when she was a teenager and now is a dedicated mother. Tannis is accepting the cheque on behalf of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Last year our team raised over $6,300 and this year our goal is to raise $7,000!
