Help Pink the Rink with the Everett Silvertips
Pink the Rink is a special night in Silvertips Country. Not only is it the first game of the year against the team’s biggest rival, the Seattle (or is it Kent?) Thunderbirds, but it’s also a night to raise money for the Providence General Foundation to fund mammography, disease prevention and breast cancer care for people with financial barriers in Snohomish County.
Since its inception, Pink the Rink has raised over a half-million dollars for Providence General Foundation, and in 2018, the Tips and their fans brought in over $65,000 in one night.
A rivalry game and a good cause. We love it. If you’re going to Pink the Rink, here’s some things you should know before the puck drops:
Get there early
This is one of the hottest games of the year, and is usually a sellout. If you haven’t purchased tickets already, there are some left but you better jump on it. Free parking can be a premium in downtown Everett around Angel of the Winds Arena, so head to the rink early to score that perfect spot.
The entire arena and the Silvertips themselves will be decked out in pink, so take part by dressing up. You can even take part in a post-game silent auction on the game-worn Tips jerseys.
Angel of the Winds Arena is already one of the loudest in the WHL, so make it even louder by bringing a cowbell (or four) to the game. Don’t have one? You can always head to the team shop to snag a bell of your own.
Hockey and popcorn are always a good combo, but have you tried the mini donuts at Angel of the Winds Arena? What about the BBQ Mac N Cheese? A slice of pizza from Major League? There’s plenty of food options in the arena.
