So this weekend Zeta Tau Alpha went to go cheer on the mens' hockey team and to promote our new and exciting event Make The Rink Pink! mtrp1.jpg
      If you haven't heard about Make the Pink Rink yet it is a day dedicated to raising money for the Rochester General's Lipson Cancer Center and the Susan G. Komen Cancer Foundation. There will be pink RIT hockey jerseys that will be auctioned, pink tiger t-shirts sold, and we are hoping to fill the whole stadium with pink. It's going to be an amazing event and I am soo excited to be apart of it. If you are interested in going it's going to take place on January 30th 2pm for the womens' game and 7pm for the mens' game. Also, if you want to purcahse a shirt look around campus for flyers, look for any Zetas (or me!) and we will be more than happy to get you a shirt. There will also be tables set up in the Student Alumni Union Jan.25th through the 29th selling shirts for $8 which will all go the the Susan G. Komen Foundation. If you miss any of the those ways don't worry! We will be selling the shirts at the game. Don't be the only one not in pink!

I love the Corner Crew chants, the making fun of the other teams and the crazy cheering fans. By the way we kicked butt Friday, we scored in the first 3 mins and won the game 5-2 against Holy Cross. We than beat them again the next day 2-0. We are pretty awesome. I'm so excited for the Make the Rink Pink game! The hockey players will be in pink that day so I hope you will be too!
