BISMARCK, ND – The Bismarck Bobcats are pleased to announce that the franchise raised over $5,000 for cancer awareness and research thanks to their Tough Enough to Wear Pink event in conjunction with the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life at the VFW Sports Center.

The team raised the money with the jersey auction held after the event, which was the fourth annual installment of Tough Enough to Play in Pink night.

“We are so grateful to our fans and sponsors who helped us help the community,” said Bobcats team owner Thom Brigl. “Bobcat Hockey is very proud to have helped the community by raising over $275,000 for charitable organizations over the past eight seasons.”
