SOUTHAVEN, Miss. – The Mississippi RiverKings are once again teaming with Wings Cancer Foundation and Pink Heals Memphis Mid-South in the fight against breast cancer for the annual "Pink in the Rink" game presented by ServiceMaster by Stratos and Sissy's Log Cabin benefiting Wings Cancer Foundation on Saturday, February 7, 2015. The RiverKings host the Pensacola Ice Flyers at 7:05 p.m. at the Landers Center. 

For every fan that purchases a ticket at the Box Office while wearing pink the RiverKings will donate $1 to Wings Cancer Foundation. They will also receive up to $10 of every fundraising ticket purchased for the game.

The RiverKings will wear special pink jerseys during the game and they will be auctioned off afterwards to benefit the RiverKings ReachOut Fund, which funds local non-profits.

Additionally, fans will have the opportunity to shave the head of their favorite player following the jersey auction.
