The Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation sincerely thanks the Virden Oil Capitals Junior A hockey team, as well as their executive, staff and fans, for their donation of $1,147.45 in support of The Western Manitoba Cancer Centre.

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Oil Caps championed the cause by having a "Pink Night" on Oct. 20 at Tundra Oil & Gas Place.

Fans were treated to pink lineup cards, players sported pink laces and stick tape, while the coaches wore pink ties.

Monies were raised in the evening’s silver collection as well, with $1 donated for each person in attendance by the Virden Oil Capitals Foundation.

"Cancer is something that has affected many people and the Oil Caps organization is no different," said Lindsey Gullett, the team’s sales and marketing manager.

"Our assistant coach, Garth Mitchell, is going through his own battle with cancer, which makes the team that much more inspired to contribute to these types of causes."

The Western Manitoba Cancer Centre provides radiation and chemotherapy treatment as well as other cancer care services at its location at 300 McTavish Ave. E. in Brandon.
