Tuesday, February 24, 2015

To honor cancer survivors and encourage women to get mammograms, University Hospitals Parma Medical Center is sponsoring Think Pink Night at the March 6 Lake Erie Monsters hockey game at Quicken Loans Arena. Survivors and their physicians and nurses will be saluted, participating in a ceremonial puck drop at the start of the 7:30 p.m. game and a post-game skate with Monsters’ players.

Survivors and their families and caregivers can receive two complimentary tickets to the Friday night game, and additional tickets for just $5 each. The first 1,000 visitors to the UH Parma Medical Center table who post Get a mammogram @UHParma #WomanUpCLE to a social media site like Facebook or Twitter – and show the staff at the table – will receive a complimentary stadium blanket. Teresa Goebel, DO, a medical oncologist at the UH Seidman Cancer Center at UH Parma Medical Center, will be on hand to greet guests and answer questions.

Plus, the first 5,000 fans to arrive will receive a special pink silicon bracelet. After the game, survivors can rent skates for free for a post-game skate with some of the hockey players. Family members are encouraged to bring their own skates to join the survivors. During the game, all fans can enjoy $1 hot dogs and $1 soft drinks.

Game tickets, and $8 discounted parking, are available at: http://groups.theqarena.com/fightcancer with the promotional code: thinkpink Discounted parking is available for $8.
