The Owen Sound Attack, in partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society’s Bluewater Office, is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Cubs For Cancer event in support of childhood cancer research and support services.
In its Inaugural Year, Cubs For Cancer raised over $51,000 through various fundraising events leading up to game day, where Attack players donned special jerseys designed by a young member of our own community.
Cubs For Cancer will again see the Attack don special jerseys for the game, which will take place on Saturday, November 17th versus the Flint Firebirds.
"The Attack organization is thrilled to once again partner with Canadian Cancer Society for such a wonderful cause," said Attack Community Relations Coordinator Devon Yakabuski.
"Last year, the Cubs For Cancer event raised more than we ever expected, and this year we want to surpass last. Cancer touches all of us, in one way or another, and it's the young ones that put up the biggest fight. This is an incredibly worthy cause and one that we are proud to support. We are looking forward to helping the Canadian Cancer Society make an impact on families in the Grey-Bruce area battling this terrible disease," Yakabuski said.
The event will see similar fundraising efforts as Cubs For Cancer's Inaugural Year, including the Attack Jersey Design Contest.
Launching today and running until September 10th, young fans will have the opportunity to design the jersey that the Attack players will wear on November 17th against the Firebirds.
Open to children aged 17 and under, the contest winner will receive a pair of tickets to the game, as well as their very own Cubs For Cancer jersey, personalized with their last name and choice of number.
