Ducks and TPS Hockey Raise Over $20,000 for Breast Cancer

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The entire Mighty Ducks of Anaheim roster and equipment manufacturer TPS Hockey teamed to raise $23,112 for the American Cancer Society, Orange County Chapter, the team announced today.

In an effort to pay tribute to hockey moms and raise awareness of breast cancer, TPS Hockey donated pink sticks for use during the team’s warm-up skate or throughout the club’s regular season game at Columbus on Sunday, March 19. Sticks were then autographed following the game and auctioned online to raise money for cancer research. The top-selling Mighty Ducks stick was Teemu Selanne, which received a top bid of $2,305.

“This program is an example of how creative ideas can turn into great accomplishments,” said Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Burke. “The monies raised by our fans in this auction will benefit many lives in the years to come.”

A majority of NHL teams participated in the program, with over 400 NHL players taking part. Each player, and goalie, had his name inscribed on the stick, which carries a breast cancer research logo.

The program was the idea and gained momentum with the support of Wayne Gretzky and TPS owner Paul Walker, both of whom had family members succumb to cancer. Funds raised by the Mighty Ducks for this event, were donated to support breast cancer services and research of the American Cancer Society, Orange County Region.

"We wish to extend tremendous gratitude to the Mighty Ducks' fans for raising much needed funds in the fight against breast cancer," says Jay McCullough, Vice President for the American Cancer Society Orange County Region. "We have made great strides; thanks to research discoveries and educational campaigns, more women survive this disease now than ever before. But we have more work to do to eradicate this cancer. Every dollar donated to the cause brings us closer to a world free from cancer."
