Gold and Pink at the Rink picks up the tabs

Team collected over 800 pounds of pop can tabs.
The game raised upwards of $900.00 for cancer research.

YORKTON – The Yorkton Maulers held their annual Gold and Pink at the Rink charity game on Jan. 8 in their matchup against the Battlefords Stars.

"This year for the Silver for Gold we collected pop can tabs that go to childhood cancer research," said Jaxon Sperling, defenseman for the Yorkton Maulers and spokesperson for the event, noting the team collected 800 pounds of pop can tabs.

"Silver for Gold collects pop can tabs from across the country to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer," read a statement on the organizations website, adding, "The tabs are then hauled to a JK Metals in Broadview, SK, by EcoGenX and 100 per cent of the money is donated to Childhood Cancer Canada."

Sperling said the game raised almost $900.00 for Silver for Gold and Brayden Ottenbreit Close Cuts for Cancer.

"I was glad to help out – I think it represents our organization very well," said Sperling, adding, "it was a lot of fun."

"I'm just really impressed with multiple sports and multiple organizations working together for everybody to succeed – it's quite impressive how the community can come together," said Greg Donnelly, President of the Yorkton Maulers U18 Male AAA Hockey Club, of the fundraiser.
