Solar Bears to host Hockey Fights Cancer Weekend, presented by XYMOPrint

ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Solar Bears will help continue the fight against cancer this Saturday and Sunday as the team hosts Hockey Fights Cancer Weekend, presented by XYMOPrint. The Solar Bears will skate against the Greenville Swamp Rabbits in a pair of games on Saturday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. and again on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 1:30 p.m. at the ARS.com Rink at Amway Center.

During both games, the Solar Bears will wear specialty Hockey Fights Cancer jerseys, which will be auctioned off during Saturday’s game and distributed to the winning bidders following the game on Sunday. A portion of the proceeds from the jersey auction will support the National Institutes of Health’s National Cancer Institute.

Fans are encouraged to share their stories and who they fight for on social media using the hashtags #OSBFightsCancer and #HockeyFightsCancer.

During Sunday’s game, a special survivor lap will take place on the ice in the first intermission. A special Chuck-a-Puck event and luminaria ceremony will be held during the second intermission. Proceeds from the Chuck-a-Puck will benefit the American Cancer Society.
