MANCHESTER, N.H. – Earlier this week, the Manchester Monarchs announced the donation of $5,000 to the CMC Breast Care Center through the team’s charitable division, the Monarchs Care Foundation.

The proceeds were raised during the Monarchs’ “Pink in the Rink” game held on Feb. 9 against the Cincinnati Cyclones.

“The Monarchs Care Foundation is dedicated to serving our communities through events that support awareness and financial support,” said Brian Cheek, Monarchs President and CEO. “Pink in the Rink is such a great night to put the spotlight not only on breast cancer but on the people who care for all cancer patients. There was a lot of positive energy in the arena during Pink in the Rink – we hope that energy was felt that night by everyone battling cancer.”

In addition to the donation, the Monarchs’ “Pink in the Rink” event also helped provide moral support according to Dr. Jessica Ryan, Medical Director of CMC’s Breast Care Center.

“Oftentimes cancer patients feel scared and alone,” said Ryan. “There’s nothing like the Pink in the Rink event to reinforce CMC’s mission of health, healing and HOPE to these women and their families.  The Monarchs Care Foundation’s support is a reminder that nobody has to fight cancer alone.”
