ESTERO, Fla. - The Florida Everblades hosted Pink in the Rink Night in conjunction with the 4 Words Foundation on Friday, June 4th. The Pink in the Rink Jerseys from the weekend were auctioned on the DASH Auction app and resulted in net proceeds raised of $21,964.78. The Everblades will donate all net proceeds from the jersey auction to the 4 Words Foundation.
“We want to express our deepest appreciation to the Florida Everblades organization, Radiology Regional, and especially all of the Florida Everblades fans who bid on the beautiful jerseys during the Pink in the Rink game,” stated Marie Springsteen, President of the 4 Words Foundation, Inc. “Your continued support of the Florida Everblades and our organization is amazing, and the funds raised will go directly back into the community to help those in need of cancer screenings get the financial help they may need.”
The 4 Words Foundation mission is to raise awareness about the importance of health screenings in the early detection, prevention, and treatment of cancer, as well as financially assist those who need additional cancer tests and screenings.
“We are grateful to have been able to raise this much money to donate to our great partner, the 4 Words Foundation, through our Pink in the Rink jersey auction,” stated Chris Palin, Everblades Executive Vice President of Business Development. “The 4 Words Foundation does so much for the Southwest Florida community. We are so thankful for our dedicated fans and DASH auction to be able to raise this much money for this great cause.”
