'Pink the Rink' event scores big in Hooksett


HOOKSETT - Tri-Town Ice Arena played host to a breast cancer awareness fundraiser with all of the proceeds donated to the American Cancer Society. Before the doors opened at 3 p.m., volunteers had already raised $10,000. On top of that, the event raised funds from tickets purchased for a youth and adult hockey game.

Organizers told NH1 News it's not about how much money can be raised but the stories of who they are fighting for.

"Two years ago, I lost my wife to breast cancer, and I know a lot of people who have been affected by breast cancer. We wanted to do something to give back and help out, make sure other kids can grow up with both their parents," said Brian Williams, event organizer.
