Oilers smash single-game fundraising record!
The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation and the Oilers Ladies smashed the team’s single-game fundraising record on Tuesday night at Rexall Place, when 10,000 autographed pink and blue Oilers ballcaps sold out just before the puck drop for the team’s annual Power Of Pink night in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Prairies/NWT Region and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation.

During a stoppage in play, the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation and the Oilers Ladies announced that thanks to the generosity of Oilers fans a total of $200,000 had been raised so far this year through the Power of Pink campaign.

Fans can continue to raise funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation through the Power of Pink online auction, which runs until Monday, November 5th, at 9:00 PM (MST), by clicking here.

Some of the items included in the Power of Pink online auction are:
